Primary election today, but few seem willing to head to polls

Email

It's primary election day in Wisconsin and while there's a lot of stake, most state residents don't seem to care.

State officials only expect 15 percent of those registered -- or 637,000 voters -- to show up at the polls.

They'll decide if 30-year U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., of Menomonee Falls should stay on the job. He has a rare primary challenger in Concordia professor Jim Burkee of Cedarburg.
