Voting Heavy On Madison Isthmus

April 5, 2011

Spring Election in Madison is intense as heavy turnout that had been predicted for days is now taking place.  Heavy absentee voting led the way in the weeks leading up to the polling today.  Madison’s City Clerk is looking at a nearly 60% turnout for the  city, while  Dane County expects upwards of a 45% turnout.

When James and I cast  a ballot at the Wil-Mar Center at 2:30 P.M. we were numbers 741 and 742, meaning that 31% of the ward had voted.   The rush hours are yet to happen….

In related news, but away from the isthmus, Wards 70 and 71, where my friend Rolf is a poll worker reports that they are near 32% turn out.

    I was number 21 at about 7:05 today at the MATC building near Oscar Meyer on Commercial. The voting desks were all full, which is the first time i’ve seen that. hopefully, a good omen.
