Kennedy: Things smooth but slow

Government Accountability Board Director Kevin Kennedy said things have been slow but smooth so far today.

Kennedy spent the day traveling Wisconsin with an official from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, checking out polling places in Madison, Sun Prairie, Delavan and Brookfield.

Kennedy said the only trouble he'd heard about were municipalities that had problems getting their equipment to work that allows those with disabilities to vote without assistance.

Oregon, for example, lost its equipment in this spring's floods and had to go to a back up, which worked fine last week but wasn't working today.

"They don't get a whole lot of use, but you want to have them there," he said.

Kennedy also said he was unsure whether the state would have turnout in the 15 percent range as he had predicted going in to today. Kennedy said it would also take a while to figure that out because there isn't a statewide race on the ballot, and it'll take a review of returns from all Wisconsin municipalities before figuring out turnout.
