Massive turnout in Milwaukee, some polling stations running out of ballots.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: “Registration forms and ballots are running out at some City of Milwaukee polling sites…Reid Magney, a spokesman for the Government Accountability Board, said his office had heard of polling stations in Milwaukee running out of registration forms for new voters. According to state law, if a person is waiting in line to register and vote and it’s after 8 p.m., that person can still legally fill out the form and vote, Magney said.” High turnout in Milwaukee may benefit Democrat Tom Barrett, who is mayor of the city.
