95 Year Old Veteran Casts Ballot in Brookfield

Many voters CBS 58 News encountered today at polling stations were eager to share why they are exercising their right to vote.

Of the most endearing was a Veteran wearing his Army Air Corps Hat.

"I'm glad to be able to vote. At my age!? I'm glad to be alive. I'm 95 years old. How about that!? I'm 95, and I hope to be able to come back next year!"

The veteran speaking out in hopes nobody will use any excuse not to vote by the time the polls close in Wisconsin at 8 p.m.

The Waukesha County Clerk anticipates up to an 80% to 85% voter turnout.

That's in keeping with presidential elections.

Ballots ran out in Lisbon, but we're told replacement ballots were soon delivered.

Lines were long when the polls first opened, and then formed again as people got off work.

There are no major problems being reported as of this hour in Waukesha County.

Results may not be in as of 10 p.m. because of the number of absentee ballots that have to be fed through the machines.

CBS 58 News will be offering local updates throughout prime time national network election coverage.
