Voter turnout expected to be down in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- One area city said it’s expecting a low voter turnout

Some of the races voters in La Crosse will decide on include county supervisors and school board.

Voters will also decide on a referendum that would allow the La Crosse school district to exceed its revenue limit by more than $4 million per year for five years starting with the 2014-2015 school year.

La Crosse city clerk Teri Lehrke said a 12% voter turnout is predicted for the city.

That’s half of what the city had in 2008.

She said there aren’t as many contested races this election, which could be a factor.

“Usually the referendum would bring out some more people, but based on the numbers that I’m seeing it looks like we’re going to be in the 12% range,” said Lehrke.

A 12% voter turnout is also predicted for the state of Wisconsin.

Polls close at 8, but anyone who’s in line by 8 will be able to vote.
