Madison Clerk Shares Election Day Statistics

Madison Clerk Shares Election Day Statistics

Many League members serve as Election Officials, Chief Inspectors, and Election Observers in communities throughout Dane County. Members also assist with early absentee voting at the Madison Clerk's office, and, of course, register many voters in the months and weeks before early voting begins. 

Madison Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl shared the following statistics that reflect the hard work done by our members.

  • 2,144 Election Officials worked at 87 polling places across the City of Madison
  • There were 118,219 in-person and absentee voters, which is 66% turnout citywide
  • 123 Provisional Ballots were cast by voters without ID and 41 of those were counted at the canvass
    • Ward 111 issued the most Provisional Ballots (8)
    • Wards 31 and 69 had the most Provisional Ballots counted (3 each)
  • 24,625 voters registered at the polls, which is over 2,000 more than in November of 2012
  • The highest number of voters for any ward in the City was ward 55 at Porchlight near the UW Campus:
    • 2,491 ballots were cast
    • 1,717 voters registered at the polls
  • The highest percentage turnout for any ward in the City was 82% at ward 65 at Glenwood Moravian just off Monroe Street
