Report: 119% Voter Turnout in Madison, WI
A Madison City Clerk has told a Wisconsin radio host that turnout for the area is expected at over 100%, up to 119%. What makes it all the more interesting is that this story comes from a far-left site.
Heavy turnout in Madison, a liberal stronghold, would likely benefit Democrat Tom Barrett.
This PDF from the City of Madison shows that as of 11:00 AM, voter turnout was at 25%, with 42,961 out of 165,312 registered voters already casting their ballots:
Progressives shrug the 119% figure off as evidence that people are registering at the polls to vote. Considering that Wisconsin has oddly relaxed voter ID laws and a judge granted an injunction against measures that would have protected people's votes, is it any surprise?
I'm sure Eric Holder's DOJ is on the case.

UPDATE: Madiscon City Clerk talks to Politico. Again, even 96% is completely unrealistic -- and why have 25% projected by 11am?
