MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Voters in the May 8 primary will be allowed to vote for both Republican and Democratic candidates if they so choose, which is different from a normal primary election.
Typically, if a person votes for one Democratic candidate or one Republican, they cannot then cross over and vote for a candidate from another party in a primary without the ballot getting rejected.
The rules are different for the recalls, which are all treated as separate elections.
In the governor's race, there are multiple Republican and Democratic candidates. In the lieutenant governor race and four state Senate recalls, the only primaries are on the Democratic side.
That means someone could vote for a Republican in the governor's race and then also vote for a Democrat in the other contests.12158492
