The state Government Accountability Board is predicting between 30 to 35 percent of Wisconsin’s voting age population will cast a ballot in next Tuesday’s recall primaries.
Voters are being asked to pick from four Democrats hoping to take on Governor Scott Walker in the June 5th recall election. The statewide ballot also includes candidates in the race for lieutenant governor.
Voters in four state Senate districts will also be selecting a Democratic candidate to face the Republican incumbent. In each of those races, the GOP is running protest candidates to make sure all six elections are held at the same time on June 5th.
GAB director Kevin Kennedy admits predicting turnout for the historic election is difficult, considering the state has never seen a statewide recall election before.
