Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Election results are starting to come in for the August partisan primary. Polls closed at 8 pm last night.
We’re monitoring several statewide and local races. After months of campaigning, voters are deciding who will be on the ballot this November.
According to the Eau Claire City Clerk’s office, turnout for today’s election was around 26 percent as of 5 pm. That’s comparable to numbers at that same time for both the 2018 and 2020 partisan primaries.
Poll workers at Bethesda Lutheran Church say they saw a steady stream of voters all day with people looking to have their voices heard
“It’s been a steady flow of voters here throughout the day. No lines, which is great. Get you guys in, get you guys out and on your way.”
Again, polls closed last night. The ballots are being counted and those results are starting to come in.
