Clerks say turnout brisk in 12th, 22nd

Clerks in the 12th and 22nd districts are reporting high turnout in today's recall election, but no real problems at the polls.

The clerk's office in Rhinelander reported turnout approaching that of a presidential election, with a line stretching outside of a VFW post serving as one of the polling places.

Eagle River reported “brisk” turnout with 294 of the city's 772 registered voters having voted as of 1 p.m. Clerk Debra Brown said the turnout has been busier than most elections and so far closer to what they normally see in presidential elections compared to a spring election.

Turnout in Antigo and Merrill has also been brisk, with the clerks there reporting turnout higher than spring elections, but below fall elections. Merrill City Clerk Bill Heideman said he anticipated high turnout and that it has met his expectations so far. Crivitz reported turnout so far typical of a spring election, with 119 of 550 registered voters voting as of 1 p.m.

In the 22nd SD, Burlington had seen about 1,200 of its approximately 5,800 registered voter at the polls today. The clerk's office reported that the polling places have been busy, and that turnout has been heavier than a spring election, but below that of a presidential election.

In Twin Lakes, 500 of the city's 2,821 registered voters voted as of 1:30 p.m., which the clerk's office said is about what the village sees in a spring election. While there have been lines, they've been moving well all day, the clerk said.

Silver Lake has seen steady turnout, but has hit an afternoon lull, Clerk/Treasurer Terry Faber said. Out of about 1,200 registered voters, Faber said 295 had voted as of 2:30 p.m.
