Polling Limited in Some Parts of Wisconsin for Primaries
All kinds of ways for local governments to save money. The latest method in Wisconsin: cutting back on places to vote. At least some municipalities in the state are playing that card as a way to cut back on costs during the upcoming recall election primaries on Tuesday. The state says some are scaling back on the numbers of polling places for those six senate districts that have primaries. In the 32nd senate district, only a few municipalities have more than one polling area, with La Crosse having by far the most at 17. All of which, says city clerk, Teri Lehrke, will be open on Tuesday for primary voting from 7 in the morning until 8 at night.
