Voters and public officials are reporting long lines at many Wisconsin polling places Tuesday — with Dane County Clerk Karen Peters calling the local turnout "just wild" so far.
"It ranges from 28 to 42 percent already; it is a huge turnout. We could hit 80 to 88 percent," Peters said of Dane County's turnout. At midday, she was fielding calls wrapping up a status report from local clerks.
I am a former Wisconsin resident (grew up there - moved away after college) ... several relatives/friends posting on Facebook about voting today. Some don't care for politics at all and they are voting for the first time. I'm glad it's a good turn-out but I fear the churches have riled up people. Really hope they go for Barrett but I'm from a small town so I'm not feeling as confident as I'd like.
