Waukesha and Washington Counties will not disclose turnout percentages. Will simply announce votes tallied.

Can/will they wait until after Dane and Milwaukee report?

W.H. on WI: "a race where one side is outspending the other by a ratio of at least 8 to 1 probably won't tell us much about a future race."

Axlerod's been counting votes, and is running, running, away from the Wisconsin results. Have no fear, FRiends: if the libs are spinning this so hard this early, you know Walker wins easily.

Doesn’t matter. There is no requirement to publicly report any “preliminary” totals. The totals must be reported (which is usually done on paper) for certification within (I think) a week.

The reported totals we are used to seeing are courtesy totals for the press.

Those exit polls are from 2010; the author already clarified that and apologized for the misunderstanding.

They won’t release exit poll results from today until the polls close.

“They HAVE to have 2008 numbers out of Dane Co”

I would not assume that high numbers out of Dane actually mean much higher Dem votes.

I live in Dane County - Verona, suburb of Madistan.

Dane County is full of libs for sure - and it is very active politically - meaning their numbers always turnout. My thought is any increased turn out is 50/50 split vote, if not worse.

I also know 3 people who voted Barrett in 2010 who are switching (I know ancedotal) but it seems everyone I’m talking to at work also know 2-3 people of the same mind.

The reasoning is “this recall business is total B.S. and embarrassing”

I will be very interested to watch the Dane Co. numbers come in tonight.

My two pennies....

Does that mean Dane and Milwaukee counties have an additional seven days to manufacture votes before they need to submit the official tally for certification?

And to think this uneasy feeling is NOTHING compared to what will happen in November.. Knowing we have a criminal in charge of the DOJ that will work to ENABLE VOTER FRAUD at every turn, with every lawsuit against our States.. Using students as TOOLS for more votes.. Crossing state lines to vote.. Pulling boxes of 'lost ballots' from trunks of cars.. There is NO integrity in our elections anymore.. Why do we accept ANY election where voters are not required to prove who they are and ensure they're eligible to vote and/or they've not voted already?

Let's treat voters like the TSA treats airline passengers. Election outcomes can be MORE deadly to our country than a terrorist on a plane.

They were at 66% in 2010.

The WOW squard is doing everything we needed and more via turnout as far as I can tell.

Have no fear. Walker is certain to win; the only question that remains is the size of his margin of victory (and I say it will be ginormous).

Dane is on pace for 75% turnout, up from 66% in 2010, but the rest of the state is up more on aveage Dane’s 9% jump. It was 50% in 2010 state wide and looks like it will be between 60-65% statewide.

Politico predicting a total of around 60-65% turnout.

Below 2008 (almost 70%) but 15 points higher than 2010.

Bodes very well for our side I believe.

Possibly, but if they don’t know how many to manufacture, what do they do? Too big a number and it’s obvious.

They need to get a difference within 0.5 percent (best case) or within 2% (worst case).

Prosser’s election saw Brookfield withhold reporting (I think) 14,000 votes. That’s a lot...

And if Waukesha County hits 75% (maybe even 80%) turnout, it will negate the Dane County tallies, leaving the rest of the state to surpass Milwaukee. I think that's about how it will play out, and though they won't, AP would be able to call the race by 10:00pm.

“I’m really afraid the Rats are gonna win with MASSIVE vote fraud!”

As much screaming as people here seem to do regarding this, there should be a huge list of reports.

How many we have today?

One call to a radio talk show from a guy from who knows where.

One cheesy piece of fiction posted on FR.

And everyone claiming to see tour buses full of union goons, and “OMG my border town is full of voters, and they must be from another state” posts.

If the conservatives in that state are really seeing any of this, then they certainly aren’t taking photos/video, calling it in, and then telling us they did.

“Thanks for the update”

Your welcome.

I also was trying to convey that Dane Co. is its’ own little political ecosystem. Not trying to say that there is a “silent majority” in Dane by any means.

But I do know there are a lot more people of a conservative mind than past elections results show. Many don’t vote because they have that permanent minority mindset thing going on - things are changing.

For example
In 2008
Dems had 72.8% of the vote in Dane
Rep had 25.82% pretty overwhelming right?

In 2010
Dems had 67.96%
Reps had 30.97%

This year I am looking for 35% for Reps - and am not putting 40% out of bounds with this high turnout. People are just sprung - that’s the only way I can explain it - we’ll see how the numbers turn out later tonight.

Also, I’m sure the inverse is not true in WOW (Washington, Ozaukee, Waukesha Counties) Higher turnout there indicates larger Rep votes - there just isn’t any more people of a Lib mindset in those areas that don’t vote already.

Hope this makes sense - I should probably eat some lunch - so nervous I forgot to eat (getting lightheaded) :-)

FROM BRIETBART:

AFL-CIO Deploys Dozens of Jesse Jackson GOTV Vans in #WIRECALL

This morning AFL-CIO Wisconsin President Phil Neuenfeldt kicked off this rolling GOTV effort at the Machinist Union in Racine, WI, according the AFL-CIO member driving this truck.

I caught up with the driver (a Milwaukee resident) of this mobile unit at a meeting point where he will rendezvous with another larger 12’x12’ vehicle to patrol the area neighborhoods. The driver told me, the AFL-CIO has deployed 30-40 of these vehicles in the 7-county area here on the eastern side of the state. He told me they have been roving the streets all week.

I asked if there were any specific routes they are on, or if they are on a random uncharted path, and he told me they are specifically targeting poor, and middle-lower class neighborhoods to strictly get out the vote.

The vehicles are plastered with AFL-CIO Reclaim Wisconsin placards and each one is also equipped with a sound system composed of a portable CD player connected speakers or megaphones. The vehicles will drive through the communities playing a message from Reverend Jesse Jackson and several locally elected officials encouraging residents to vote for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and Professional Fire Fighters Union President Mahlon Mitchell in the country’s third ever gubernatorial recall election.

this email just came from the Tea Party Express:

“The polls close in Wisconsin in just 5 hours, and after surveying turnout in precincts thus far, we’ve come to the conclusion that we need to boost conservative/Republican turnout by 3%-4%.

So we need your help. This is urgent. We need to ask you to please support the Phone From Home program that our friends at the Tea Party Express are running.
Here are the details on how you can make a few calls, from the comfort of your own home, to targeted Wisconsin voters:”

BREITBART: GOP Poll Watcher Thrown Out of Madison Precinct
Developing...

In the video below a GOP election observer, i.e. poll watcher, explains how she was ejected from a precinct in Madison, WI this afternoon. The local precinct official wanted the observer to move far away from the table where voters check in to receive a ballot. When the observer noted that she would be unable to fulfill her duties so far away, she was ejected from the precinct.

The official stated off camera that the GOP observer was “looking at voters and taking notes. That’s intimidation.” Actually, that’s what we call poll-watching. The “notes” was likely ticking off the names of voters as they received a ballot. Poll watchers from both parties generally have a list of registered voters and track who requests a ballot to ensure that only registered voters can vote.

The Democrats need an overwhelming turnout in Madison to have any hope of winning. Ejecting a GOP poll watcher, who had only been at the precinct for about 20 minutes, raises suspicions that they may just do whatever it takes to get that turnout.
