MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board reports long lines and heavy turnout for Tuesday's historic recall election.
The board tweeted that no widespread problems have been reported in vote gathering around the state. But it does have one report of a damaged tabulator that poll workers found in the Marathon County Village of Rothschild. Police were called to investigate.
Elections officials expect up to 65 percent of Wisconsin's eligible voters to turn out for the recall election. Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch are facing opponents, as are three Republican senators.
Walker faces a rematch with Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, whom he beat in 2010 by 5 percentage points, as he tries to become the first U.S. governor to successfully fend off a recall.
