MADISON (WKOW) -- State election officials expect at least three million people to vote in the November 6 general election.
State Government Accountability Board Director Kevin Kennedy offered the projection at a news conference on Tuesday.
Kennedy says about 4.37 million people in Wisconsin old enough to vote. He says turnout is usually high when voters feel they have a stake in the elections and the stagnant economy has touched almost everyone.
Kennedy says turnout in the 2008 election was about 2.98 million.
Kennedy also spoke about a new website that offers military and overseas voters online ballots. He says the system will help voters abroad can return the ballots by mail in time to be counted.
In 2008, nearly 6,500 military and overseas voter absentee ballots were counted in the state.
