Dane County Turnout Could Reach 80-88% For Recall Election

June 5, 2012

Holy Cow!

Voters and public officials reported long lines at many Wisconsin polling places Tuesday — with Dane County Clerk Karen Peters calling the local turnout “just wild” and Milwaukee calling in extra poll workers.

“It ranges from 28 to 42 percent already; it is a huge turnout. We could hit 80 to 88 percent,” Peters said midday of Dane County’s turnout. She collected status reports from local clerks.

Extra poll workers were sent to some polling places in Milwaukee, mainly to handle long lines, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. The paper quoted an election official as saying part of the slowdown was due to the number of new people registering at the polls.
