MADISON (WKOW) – Voters going to the polls for the May 8 recall primary will be able to vote for both Republican and Democratic candidates in different races.
Usually, voters can't cross over and vote for a candidate from one party and then vote for a candidate in another party without the ballot getting rejected. But the rules are different for the recalls because they're treated as separate elections.
In the governor's race, there are several Republican and Democratic candidates. In the lieutenant governor race and four state Senate recalls, the only primaries are on the Democratic side. That means someone could vote for a Republican in the governor's race and also vote for a Democrat in the other races.
