Lake Country election officials are describing as "typical" what appears to be a heavy voter turn out through out the region.
Election officials in Lisbon, Sussex, and the Village of Merton reported waiting lines in excess of 100 people as the polls opened at 7 a.m.
More than 70 voters had cast ballots within the first 26 minutes of voting at Hamilton High School, on Town Line Road, one of three polling places for the Town of Lisbon.
A line of voters stretching from inside the National Guard Armory on Maples Avenue to an outside parking lot formed quickly after the polls opened in the Village of Sussex.
Nearly 200 voters in the Village of Merton and nearly 250 in the Village of Hartland had cast ballots within the first two hours of voting.
Sussex Village Clerk Sue Freiheit, Merton Village Clerk Tom Nelson, and Town of Lisbon election inspector Rebecca Heinritz all describe the early morning turnout in their communities as "typical" of a presidential election even though an estimated 30 percent of voters may have already cast absentee or "early" ballots prior to election day.
