Long Lines Not Expected at Primary Polling Places

People heading to the polls today likely won’t face long lines that are typical in November elections. The Wisconsin Elections Commission is only projecting turnout to land between 14 and 20-percent for the partisan primary. Even if it hits the higher end of that spectrum, it’s still low compared to the 50 to 55-percent that usually show up for Presidential midterms. Early voting numbers were high – with more than 98,000 ballots submitted. That’s more than any primary going back to 2010.
