GERMANTOWN- Wisconsin voters are deciding which Republican will run for US Senate in November, while poll workers across the state expect about a 20 percent turnout for Tuesday's primary.
TODAY'S TMJ4's Lacey Crisp reports that it's been fairly light at one polling station in Germantown.
Some voters at that polling station told TODAY'S TMJ4 they've only made up their minds in the last few days. And that all four Republican candidates for Senate are equally matched.
Some people said they made their decision on who could beat Democrat Tammy Baldwin in November, and others say their vote came down to whom they think can keep the seat for a few terms.
The candidates told TODAY'S TMJ4 because this is an unusually early primary, they expect lower turnout, which could have a big impact on the outcome.
It is unclear who would benefit most from a lower turnout.
One thing poll workers here want to remind voters is that this is a partisan primary, which means you can only vote for one party.
