Voter Turnout Hits 20 Year Low

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Turnout for the presidential election in Wisconsin appears to be a 20-year low. Turnout in Tuesday’s election was about 66 percent of the voting age population, based on unofficial results. Nearly all precincts were reporting Wednesday morning. More than 2.9 million people voted in Wisconsin’s Senate race, about 3,000 more than did in the presidential. The Wisconsin Elections Commission predicted about 3.1 million would cast ballots, which would have been roughly a 69 percent turnout.
