Turnout high in Appleton

Local election officials are reporting mixed voter turnout levels as numbers begin to roll in early this afternoon. But in Appleton, turnout is projected to more than double the city clerk's original estimate.

Officials reported a turnout of just over 15 percent at noon, and Deputy City Clerk Mary Wendell said the noon total is generally about one-third of the final turnout. That would put the new projection at 45 percent, well over the original 20 percent estimate from the city clerk.

"We're definitely going to pass that," Wendell said.

In Green Bay, the office of the city clerk/treasurer said 10 a.m. returns showed a 10 percent turnout, with varied turnout levels at the city's 49 polling locations. Madison is reporting 17 percent turnout as of 11 a.m.

Milwaukee Election Commission Executive Director Sue Edman said officials don't have any numbers yet, but "we're hearing from chief inspectors that it's been steady." She said the commission received one electioneering complaint, and that a few technical issues early in the morning have been resolved.

In Waukesha, which, unlike many of the state's other large cities, does not have a contested county executive race on the ballot, Deputy Clerk Gina Kozlik said returns are high in a contested city aldermanic district, but "everything else doesn't seem to be that busy."

Kozlik said final turnout should be in the 20 to 25 percent range, which is on par with other spring elections with a statewide race on the ballot.

UPDATE: As of 2 p.m., Green Bay had 21 percent turnout, while Madison is reporting turnout of 35 percent at 4 p.m.
