Things are finally back to “normal” for Wisconsin elections officials. That’s not necessarily a good thing. Voter turnout for Tuesday’s primary election is expected to be about ten percent. Madison voters requested 26-thousand absentee ballots, and about half were returned. Local officials say that’s nearly twice the normal seven-to-eight-thousand absentee ballots filed, but it’s also a small minority of the number of voters. Another election is less than two months away. City, village, and town races will be on the April 6th ballot and clerks will be preparing for about a 50-percent turnout, but they say it won’t be anywhere near that high.
