A quick note on April turnouts in Wisconsin
I wanted to look at how many votes we should expect in tomorrow's State Superintendent race, so I'm going to look at all April elections from 2011-2019 in Wisconsin, while deleteing the 2 presidential primaries in 2012 and 2016 (which skews the turnout higher). 2011 is still the height of April turnout in a statewide election (over 1.5 million votes), with the Kloppenburg-Prosser Supreme Court race coming as the first major election that took place at the height of the Act 10 conflict. But 2019's Hagedorn-Neubauer Supreme Court race was the second highest, with slightly more than 1.2 million votes.
