NOW: Milwaukee voters head to polls despite rainy weather

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The rainy weather isn’t keeping people from coming out to vote in Tuesday’s primary election.

CBS 58’s Tori Bokios was at the Zeidler Municipal Building where some Milwaukee residents cast their ballot.

The polls opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning and since then, a steady stream of people have been coming in to vote.

The Milwaukee County Clerk expects a countywide turnout of between 8%-10%. Tuesday’s winners will then advance to the general election on April 3.

On Tuesday, there is only one statewide race. It’s for Justice of the State Supreme Court and there are three candidates on the ballot.

One voter told CBS 58 that race is what brought him out to the polls.

“I look for our judges to be non-partisan and I want to make sure that they are looking at laws as opposed to their thoughts on what things should be so to me that was the reason why I really wanted to vote today,” said voter Andy Laird.

The polls close at 8:00 p.m. Tuesday. If you are not registered, you can register at the polling site.
