Wait to vote is 2 hours at 1 polling place in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

A state elections official says the wait to cast a ballot at one polling place in Wisconsin is two hours.

Government Accountability Board elections administrator Michael Haas says a voter called from the Town of Cottage Grove in Dane County who ended up leaving his polling place because the wait was too long. Haas says elections officials are contacting the town clerk to see if help is needed.

Haas says he has talked to a-half dozen election clerks Tuesday who tell him the polls are busy, but not unmanageable.

State elections officials expect 1.7 million voters to go to the polls for the presidential primary in Wisconsin, or about 40 percent of eligible voters.
