Low voter turnout for Racine mayoral special election

NOW: Low voter turnout for Racine mayoral special election

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- There has been a slow stream of people coming into the Lakeview Community Center.

Low voter turnout means tonight's decision between Cory Mason and Sandy Weidner could come down to just a handful of votes.

The candidates have defined themselves this way: Mason has stressed the need for Racine to prepare to take advantage of Foxconn and get people prepared with a goal of restoring the middle class.

Weidner has said the culture of City Hall needs to change and that city officials need to be more inclusive in their decision making.

Here's what voters say they're concerned about. 

"I think the infrastructure of all the roads that right now are pretty much clogged up everywhere," said voter Moses Godina.

"Now with Foxconn moving into the county, it's gonna be a lot of important things happening that need to be addressed and just throw money at," said voter Steven Vargas. 

The polls close at 8 p.m.
