Some more numbers

Most of the vote is in, and some numbers are coming into focus on today's turnout on both sides.

With 99 percent of the vote in, the four Dem candidates combined for 646,076 votes.


Walker pulled 613,597.

The “fake” or “protest” Dem candidate Gladys Huber received 4,649 votes, while Capitol protester Arthur Kohl-Riggs collected 19,591 in the GOP primary.

In the 2010 September primary for guv, 601,935 votes were cast with 362,913 going to Walker in his match up with Mark Neumann.

In the Dem primary that year, 213,415 voted for Tom Barrett, while 22,296 voted for little-known Tim John, according totals in the Blue Book.

Almost 1.3 million votes were cast in the guv races with some more yet to come in. With a voting age population of more than 4.3 million people, that puts turnout at around 30 percent. The Government Accountability Board last week projected a turnout of 30 percent to 35 percent.

According to the GAB, the highest voter turnout in a September primary in the last 50 years was 1964, when it was 27.9 percent. The highest turnout over the past decade was 22.5 percent in 2002, and the best turnout recorded was 38.9 percent in 1952.
