Election update -- 3 p.m.

Posted in

Wisconsin voters continue going to the polls this afternoon, and so far we are not aware of any major issues.

We do not have any numbers on turnout -- just annecdotal reports that turnout continues to be heavy around the state.

We have seen some minor issues around the state of the kind that we would expect on a big Election Day -- some voting equipment issues that are being handled by municipal clerks.

One minor issue we've become aware of is that some voters are over-voting in the presidential race by selecting one of the two major party candidates and a minor party candidate. When they try to insert their ballot in the machine, it gets rejected and they have to fill out another ballot. We would urge voters to carefully study the ballot before marking it.
