Good Turnout For FDL County Elections

Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg was nearly spot on with her prediction for yesterday’s turnout of voters for elections in the County. She predicted 28 percent and 29 percent turned out despite snowy conditions. She says, “We had 15,519 people vote so that brings us to a 29 percent turnout so it is very good for a spring election.” The only glitch was at Wards 1 and 2 and 9 and 10 in the City of Fond du Lac where a couple of voting machines didn’t work for the first 45 minutes. The ballots were stored in auxiliary bins until they could be fed through the machines.
