With 57.2 percent of the voting-age population voting in yesterday’s midterm election, Wisconsin saw the highest midterm election totals on record.
Nearly 2.7 million people cast ballots, based on unofficial totals. Democrat Tony Evers defeated Gov. Scott Walker in the state’s closest governor’s race in more than half a century.
Massive voter turnout happened in Democratic strongholds like Dane County and Milwaukee County. Evers won in Dane County by more than 150,000 votes and 50 points. A 95 percent voting turnout was recorded in three places in Dane County – Maple Bluff, Shorewood Hills and Town of Perry.
