Wisconsin Reports Record Turnout In Nov. Election
Wisconsin set a voter turnout record in the Fall 2012 General Election, according to official results certified today by the Government Accountability Board.
Wisconsin’s chief election official reports that the 3,071,434 votes cast for President was the highest number of votes cast for a single office in a statewide election in Wisconsin history. The state’s turnout rate of 70.14 percent of eligible voters casting ballots in the presidential race was the fourth-highest percentage since records have been kept going back to 1948.
Of course, Wisconsin went to President Barack Obama, who went on to defeat his republican challenger Mitt Romney.
