MADISON (WSAU) State officials expect about a-third of Wisconsin’s eligible voters to cast ballots in Tuesday’s recall primaries. Democrats will choose a finalist to try-and-unseat Governor Scott Walker in the general election on June 5. There will also be primaries for lieutenant governor and four state Senate seats.
Reid Magney of the Government Accountability Board says about 1.5-million eligible voters are expected at the polls, for a turnout of 30-to-35 percent.
Today is the deadline for voters to ask for absentee ballots by mail, except for service personnel and those indefinitely confined – and their deadline is tomorrow. Also, absentee voters can cast ballots in-person at local clerks’ offices until the close of business tomorrow.
