The Latest: Turnout nears 12 percent for spring primary

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More people voted in Wisconsin’s spring primary than usual.

Turnout in Tuesday’s primary was 11.9 percent. That tops the 7.3 percent average for spring primaries over the past two decades where a state Supreme Court race is the only statewide contest on the ballot.

Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock and Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet advanced in the primary. They will face off on April 3. Madison attorney Tim Burns was eliminated.

Screnock had 46 percent of the vote based on unofficial results. Dallet was second with 36 percent while Burns had 18 percent.
