Record number of Wisconsinites cast vote for single office

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A record number of Wisconsinites voted for president on November sixth.

The state Government Accountability Board said Thursday that 3,071,434 people voted for one of the White House hopefuls.

Those were the most votes in a statewide election for a single office in Wisconsin history.

President Obama won the state’s 10 electoral votes, by getting 52.8% percent of the popular vote to 45.9% for Republican Mitt Romney.

71% of Wisconsin’s eligible voters cast ballots. That was the 4th highest percentage since officials started keeping track of that in 1948.
