70 percent turnout predicted on Election Day


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- The state elections board is predicting nearly 70 percent voter turnout for Election Day.

The Government Accountability Board expects that nearly 70 percent of the state's 4.35 million eligible voters will go to the polls on Tuesday.

Wisconsin voters heading to the polls will be choosing a president, U.S. senator, their representatives in the House and state legislators. In the presidential race, President Barack Obama and GOP candidate Mitt Romney are seeking to win battleground Wisconsin's coveted 10 electoral votes.

Weather forecasters are predicting a dreary Election Day. The National Weather Service says voters should expect rain and 40 degree temperatures across much of Wisconsin on Tuesday. 

On 27 News at 5 tonight, Kevin Kennedy, director for the GAB, will join us to discuss voter turnout and what voters need to know about election day.
