Madison — More workers are being sent out to address long lines at some polls in the city of Kenosha, where one of two Senate recall elections is being held Tuesday.

Meanwhile, strong turnouts were being reported in northern Wisconsin, site of the other election.

“We’re hearing about long lines in Kenosha, which the clerk is addressing by sending more workers and splitting poll books. There have also been some complaints about electioneering with signs and bumper stickers on cars near the polling place.

City of Kenosha clerk Mike Higgins confirmed that he had sent more workers to a few polling places and that the lines were now much shorter.
