MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Turnout for Wisconsin's primary elections two weeks ago was even lower than state election officials predicated.
The state Government Accountability Board had predicted turnout would be 15 percent of eligible voters. The agency released figures Tuesday showing the official turnout for the Aug. 12 elections was 12.7 percent.
The GAB said 552,342 people cast votes out of a voting-age population of 4,348,307.
The primary races laced a top-tier statewide race. The most intriguing race was the three-way contest between Susan Happ, Jon Richards and Ismael Ozanne for the Democratic attorney general nomination.
Happ won, earning the right to face Republican Brad Schimel in the Nov. 4 general election.
