Dodge County Clerk Says Voter Turnout Similar To Last Governor Election

(Juneau) Dodge County Clerk Karen Gibson says voter turnout was comparable to the last gubernatorial election in 2018.

“So, Dodge County we had 39,325 ballots cast,” says Gibson. “And that compares to November of 2018, the last governor election had 38,018.”

Gibson says most municipalities returned ballots between 85-to-100-percent of their registered voters. She notes that there were long polling lines at times, especially at the five o’clock and seven o’clock hours.

“The clerks and the poll workers and polls were busy…not quite presidential busy but busy,” says Gibson.

Gibson says all results were in around 9:20pm which she called (quote) “fantastic” and credited the hard work of all poll workers and county clerks. She notes that there were just minor issues with voters not having the correct proof of residency but overall, the day went smoothly.
