20-percent voter turnout expected for spring elections

by

MADISON (WRN)  Turnout for Tuesday's spring election is expected to be about average. Reid Magney with the state Government Accountability Board says the big races are for the state Supreme Court and Superintendent of Public Instruction. Although, local offices and issues will dominate most ballots.

 The last time there was a Supreme Court race on the ballot in 2011, voter turnout ended up being around 34-percent. Magney says the GAB is only projecting about 20-percent of eligible voters will show up at the polls this year.

Magney reminds voters that you still do not need a photo I-D at the polls, if you are already registered. However, unregistered voters will need to bring documents to provide proof of residency.

The polls open Tuesday at 7am, and will remain open through 8 that evening.
