The Wisconsin Elections Commission reports the voter turnout for Tuesday’s primary election was 7.2%. That’s basically one-tenth of the turnout three months ago for the November presidential election when 72% of eligible voters cast ballots. There was only one statewide race on the ballot this time – the competition between seven candidates for Wisconsin superintendent of schools. Election officials say they weren’t surprised by the low turnout. Just under 325,000 people voted. More voters are expected to cast their ballots in the April 6th general election, but nothing like the number of voters last fall.
