EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An early figure for the City of Eau Claire shows voter turnout was just 2 percent.
City Clerk Donna Austad reported the figure for voter turnout as of noon Tuesday. Last week, the Government Accountability Board predicted turnout for the State of Wisconsin would be 15 percent for Tuesday's Partisan Primary Election.
On Tuesday afternoon, a woman at the City Clerk's office in Menomonie told WEAU 13 News that a turnout figure for that city would not be available before 8 p.m. Tuesday, which is when the polls close. People living in Menomonie are among those voting in a democratic primary for Dunn County Sheriff.
