— September 14th is primary election day in Wisconsin and Rock County Clerk, Lori Stottler, says everything is ready to go.

While state officials predict a 28% voter turnout, Stottler thinks Rock County will reflect a turnout of between 10% to 15%.


Wisconsin's primary election is held to identify the strongest candidate for each office, in each party. In order to do that, Stottler says, crossover voting is not allowed. She says if you want to assure your vote is counted, check a party preference on the ballot. The computer will then only count the votes for candidates in that party. If you fail to check a party preference and you vote for candidates in more than one party, your ballot will not be counted.


Polls across the state open at 7 am and close at 8 pm. Stottler says if you have questions about polling places or want to review your ballot, log onto the state website vpa.wi.gov
