Wisconsin Sees Record Voter Turnout for Midterm


State elections officials report 59.4 percent of adults in Wisconsin voted on Tuesday, based on unofficial results. That is a record for voter turnout in a midterm election. The number of absentee ballots cast prior to Election Day was also a record for a midterm. 

The Wisconsin Elections Commission says the election was relatively trouble-free, with no evidence of hacking, voter fraud, or suppression. Counties will begin certifying their vote totals next week, and must have them to the elections commission by November 20th. The commission then has to certify those results within ten days of receiving the last county canvass report or December 3rd, whichever comes first. 

Under a law passed in 2017, candidates can only seek a recount when they lost by less than one-percent of the vote, or by less than 40 votes in races where fewer than 4,000 votes were cast.
