MILWAUKEE- The spring primary polls are over in Milwaukee and it has "gone very well" despite a few technical issues early on Tuesday, according to Sue Edman, Executive Direct of the Milwaukee Election Commission.
Edman joined Wisconsin's Afternoon News Tuesday to update the show on the very latest feedback and problems concerning the first time voters in Wisconsin have to deal with the new Voter ID law.
Edman reports there have been "few issues" related to Voter ID and talked about having a staff of 1,500 poll workers as well as more "hardcore" voters have been showing up so far.
She reports there was a flurry of people in the morning, but the afternoon has died down a little bit and they expect a good turnout when people get off work in the evening.
She projects around 18-20,000 voters on Tuesday. If you want to show up and vote, this is what you will need.

Voters will also be required to sign a poll list at their polling place. If you need to register to vote, just bring some sort of proof of residence.
Click here to find your polling place via the Wisconsin GAB Voter Search page.
You can also use that link to look up your voter registration and who will be on the ballot when you vote.
If you are not registered to vote, however, you can also look up your polling place by address.
The polls remain open until 8 p.m.
