MADISON, WI (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.
WAUWATOSA, WI (AP)-- Aging Wisconsin voters are facing transportation and identification challenges as they look to vote on Election Day.
Wisconsin Assisted Living Association executive director Jim Murphy tells Wisconsin Public Radio that traveling to a polling place can be difficult and that Wisconsin's voter ID law poses an issue to older adults who may not have a valid driver's license because they don't drive.
