HUGE voter turnout.
According to the Waukesha Patch….
“At 6:30 we already had our first lady in line,” said Jane Neill, chief inspector at the Waukesha West High School polling location. “And we had a line before we opened at 7.”
Within the first hour of the polls opening at West, 306 voters had already cast ballots, which is 10 percent turnout for that location.
Neill said the line to vote stretched to the street very early in the morning, which signaled a massive turnout. She said the line wasn’t even as long that early for the 2008 presidential election.
What does it mean? Considering that half of teachers, when given the chance to opt out of automatic Union dues withholding, chose to do so. That, combined with the improving economic conditions in Wisconsin, are very encouraging signs.

YES! That’s great news! After Walker did so well in the polls these last few weeks, I was afraid that Walker voters would become complacent and not enough of them would turn out. It sounds as they’re out in full force.
