Wisconsin on pace for record voter turnout

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Government Accountability Board reports heavier than normal turnout in some parts of Wisconsin and are experiencing only minor problems.

Some of the problems include voters being asked to show photo identification although none is needed, political signs posted too close to polling places and voter registration issues.

Voter turnout is on pace to meet the predicted 2.5 million voters heading to the polls, according to Wisconsin election officials. If the state hits this anticipated turnout, it will be the highest on record for a midterm election.

96 percent of requested absentee ballots being tracked have been returned so far and are due by Friday.
