Wisconsin study says early voting can decrease turnout

November 2009, MADISON, Wisconsin: This month the University of Wisconsin released a study that says that early voting, such as early and absentee voting, can reduce the total voter turnout.[1] "Early and absentee voting siphons activity away from Election Day itself that would have stimulated turnout," said the report. The report was conducted by University of Wisconsin-Madison political science professors Barry Burden, Kenneth Mayer and David Canon, as well as public affairs professor Donald Moynihan from La Follette School of Public Affairs.[2]

The full report can be found here.
