The polls opened at 7AM for today’s primary election, where Madison voters will get to decide who goes to the April ballot for races for Madison mayor, a bevy of city alders, and state Supreme Court.
According to the Madison Clerk’s Office, as of 11AM this morning nearly 20,000 ballots had been counted, over 7,000 of which had been absentee ballots. That comes out to a voter turnout of 10 percent of pre-registered voters.
We traveled around the city today to talk with voters about why they were heading to the polls.
