When voters head to the polls for today’s primary election they can only vote for candidates from one political party.
State Elections Commission spokesman Reid Magney says that means they can’t vote for a Democrat in the race for governor and a Republican for U.S. Senate. He says some states force voters to register what party they belong to and then they have to vote for candidates from that party.
Magney says in Wisconsin people can pick the side of the ballot they want. He says people can choose on the day, but they have to stick to either the Republican or Democratic ballot.
The polls close at eight tonight. WHBY will have coverage of the results throughout the night.
