County officials report high levels of voter turnout for Tuesday’s primaries.
Rock County reported levels of 62%, while Walworth county reported over 32%. Polling places reported long lines, with some Janesville voters citing waits of 45 minutes or more.
Yesterday’s election was also the first with high turnout to require a photo ID. The Janesville Gazette reported that police had to confront a belligerent voter in Hedberg, but most people had no issue with the requirement.
