MADISON -- A debate over voters' rights will take center stage in Madison Tuesday.

Lawmakers are set to vote on a bill that will limit the hours a week in-person absentee voting is available.

It would change absentee voting hours to 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said this will jam up the process and discourage people from voting.
