  •  What's turnout like? (0+ / 0-)

    Any info?

    •  very, very low... (0+ / 0-)

      poll workers have been let go early in some locations.

      George W. Bush wanted to privatize Social Security; Paul Ryan wants to privatize Medicare. Aren't they the very definition of "too big to fail?" What are they thinking???

        It's hard to really compare with anything else.  Absolutely it's low compared to a November election.  But this is a one-party, special election primary.

        Word I've gotten is that people are happy with the turnout.

        So maybe poll workers are being let go, but only because polling locations wanted to be absolutely sure they could handle the turnout & overstaffed.  I think some had a tough time with the WI SC election this spring.

        RECOUNT. Recall - We did it!! VOTE against the frauds, then VOTE TO TAKE WISCONSIN BACK!!! Rescind. Rebuild. Now with more voting, thanks to republican dirty tricks.

          if some areas were overstaffed.

      Very high in Glendale (Up to 50%) which is an area Pasch should do very well in.  Reports are low in Mequon and Germantown- very red areas.  Will be interesting to see how Milwaukee wards turn-out
