UPDATE: Walker survives recall, but Democrats knocked out one GOP state senator, apparently assuming control of that body.
Here's your Wisconsin recall election open thread. A couple of things to remember as we watch the results come in:
- Democratic areas like Madison are going to have more people voting than were previously registered, thanks to WI's same-day-registration law. Now you know why the Republicans want to get rid of same-day voter registration.
- Anyone who is in line by 8 pm can vote, or register and vote.
- Scott Walker is not the only person on the recall ballot. His Lt. governor, as well as 4 WI Republican state senators are facing recalls. Winning even one of those would alter the balance in the State Senate.
- Exit polls are showing that while the recall race for governor is extremely close, the voters who are voting today would give the state to Obama in November.
