Low Turnout Expected For Primary Election

A small turnout is expected for the primary election today. Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg says you will need to vote one-party in this election. You will also need a photo ID whether it is a driver’s license, passport, military or college ID or other form of photo ID. Freiberg says she is anticipating a better turnout at the polls than what the state is predicting. She says she would like to see 22 percent of registered voters cast their vote, but expects about a 20 percent turnout. The state is predicting a 16 percent turnout. KFIZ will carry the results tonight with live reports during the Brewer’s game and results will also be posted here on the KFIZ.com.
