Impacts of Wisconsin Recall Elections Can be Seen in Stillwater
Stay with Patch all night as we cover Wisconsin's historic recall election like nobody else can. We'll have updates from local polling places, real-time results and video from the election night parties of both Scott Walker and Democrat Tom Barrett.
Wisconsin voters are heading to the polls in huge numbers today to cast their ballots in the state's historic recall elections.
That election has even stretched into Stillwater as supporters of Scott Walker spent the afternoon on the Minnesota side of the Stillwater Lift Bridge reminding commuters to go home and vote.
Rep. Michele Bachmann even got in on the action.
At about 4 p.m. Bachmann posted this as her Facebook status:
"There is still time to "Stand with Walker" in the recall election today. If you live in Wisconsin, please make sure you are at your polling location before 8 pm in order to vote for Walker. A Walker Victory will remind the progressives and union bosses that Americans know conservative leadership creates jobs."
