APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) In just four days, voters head to the polls for the historic recall election. And while turnout is already predicted to be in the high 60% range, both parties are working hard to make sure voters get to the polls.
It's not your typical song or sight for a campaign rally but this hasn't been a typical year in Wisconsin. It was all part of the town to town sign along near Houdini Plaza. Members of the Rotunda Solidarity Singers in Madison spent the day in Appleton trying to encourage voters to head to the polls Tuesday.
Frieda Schowalter drove in from Madison. "Tuesday is incredibly important," she says. "There are a lot of hidden things going on, a lot of surprises, the divide and conquer."
C.J. Montour is with the Outagamie County Democrats. "[Walker's] completely split the state in half... Turning neighbors against neighbors," he said. He says everyone should get out and vote despite who they support or what they believe the outcome will be. "I believe it was the April election and there were a couple of county board seats in Portage County and it was divided by one vote... One vote cost that person a chance to get in."
Organizers were also quick to remind voters it's not just about the Governor's office come Tuesday but also the State Senate. "One seat right now to flip the Senate and there are three that we don't know which way they are going to go."
If the democrats get one seat in the Senate and Governor Walker wins, that could make for an interesting situation as Walker works to get his legislation approved.
Voting polls in Wisconsin open at 7 am and close at 8 pm. No ID is required.
