"Well I'm a truck driver and I won't be here," Norman said.
Unlike large communities, there haven't been long lines for absentee ballots at Shawano City Hall. But election officials say interest in early voting has been very strong.
"We've issued a total of 293 ballots...and in the past two elections for out local officials and the primary recall, we had only issue 170 approximately for each of those," said Shawano Deputy Clerk Lesely Nemetz.
The story is the same for communities like Seymour and Oconto, which expect about 200 people to cast absentee ballots.
Election officials say anyone looking to cast an absentee ballot in a big, medium or small community had better get it done before the weekend.
"There is a change now that you can't do anything that Monday before an election," Nemetz said.
"We'll probably have a large number of people coming in."
Some, like Robert Norman, are leaving nothing to chance.
"I missed the last one. Got here a day late and they told me I couldn't vote. So I wanted to make sure I got it done this time," he said.
