Wisconsin turnout through the roof

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.

1. I expect this is true -

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.
