When it comes to voting, Wisconsinites are content, according to a recent survey by UW Prof. Barry Burden for the state Government Accountability Board.
"The main message was that voters were pretty happy," Burden says. "They were confident their vote was counted correctly, and they were able to vote quickly."
In Wisconsin, 75% of voters cast their ballot in less than 10 minutes, slightly better than the national average.
Burden has a few theories about why this is so. Paper ballots are used throughout the state ("electronic voting machines take longer"), and voters can register on the day of the election. "If there's a problem, they can simply re-register," he says. "That eliminates provisional ballots."
