Milwaukee (WQOW) - It seems voters in Wisconsin have differing opinions on the best way to vote in upcoming elections.

That's according to a newly released Marquette Poll.

The poll shows that 79% of Republicans plan to vote in-person for the November general election, either early or on election day itself.

Only 39% of Democrats plan to vote in person.

On the flip side, just 15% of Republicans plan to vote absentee compared to 55% of Democrats. This comes after President Trump has claimed multiple times that mail-in ballots lead to an influx in voter fraud.

The way people plan to vote also shows a great devide in who those voters plan to select on their ballots.

For those who plan to vote in person on election day, 67% of them will cast their ballot for Trump.

As for absentee voters, a whopping 81% are casting their vote for Joe Biden.
