Election workers report smooth Wisconsin election

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Election workers say voting in Wisconsin went remarkably smoothly during Tuesday's election.

  Milwaukee Election Commission official Neil Albrecht says the city made several changes that made for a more efficient election than 2004.

  He says he hopes the strong performance -- quote -- "helps dispose of the myth that Milwaukee is some sort of voter-fraud city."

  Just a month ago, some were speculating that Wisconsin could become the next Florida in a tight presidential race.

  But a lawsuit filed by Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen that threatened to hold up the registration process was dismissed.

  Election workers say an explosion of early absentee voting also helped reduce lines across the state.
