WI election officials say turnout on pace to meet expectations

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- As we get closer to the closing of polling locations, Wisconsin election officials say turnout is on pace to meet predictions of about 2.5 million voters or about 56.5% of the voting-age population in the state.

It would be the highest turnout on record for a midterm election.

The Government Accountability Board reported Tuesday turnout was heavier than normal in some areas, and noted only minor problems have been reported. The board says reported problems include voters being asked to show photo identification although none is needed, political signs being too close to polling places and issues with voter registration.

About 96% of requested absentee ballots tracked by the board have been returned, so far. They are due by Friday.
