MILWAUKEE --The after work crowd reports having relatviely short waiting lines to vote Tuesday.

The Zeidler Municipal Building has a steady stream of voters. Some of the longest waits were between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m.

Redistricting may be the only thing to throw a curve ball to some Wisconsin voters who may have a new polling place or may be voting for different candidates in a new district. It won't affect a voter's ballot when it comes to the presidential and U.S. Senate races. Redistricting is done every 10 years to adjust the boundaries of voting districts to accommodate population shifts.

The chairman of the Republican National Committee says party enthusiasm on the ground will translate to a Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan win. Reince Priebus says volunteers and others across the Midwest have done a great job of getting out the vote to secure a Republican victory.

Paul Ryan has a backup plan regardless of who wins the White House. The Wisconsin congressman is seeking re-election to the U.S. House in addition to being tapped as Republican Mitt Romney's running mate. Ryan has held his 1st District seat in southeast Wisconsin since 1998. He would resign from Congress if he wins both races.
