Wisconsin's historic recall election is expected to draw large numbers of voters to the polls Tuesday.
Republican Gov. Scott Walker and his wife, Tonette, waited in line as the polls opened at 7 a.m. before voting in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. His Democratic challenger Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett voted at the Milwaukee French Immersion school.
Milwaukee Elections Commission director Susan Edman says her technicians are reporting lines at many city voting places. Turnout of 65 percent statewide is predicted. One polling station in Madison had a line about 30 people deep shortly after it opened.
Retired state employee Jerry Darda of Madison says he voted for Walker because he ought to finish his term. John Ipsen of Madison voted for Barrett, saying he opposes Walker's policies.
