Click here to listen to Jay Sorgi report on a woman who misundersood that Super Tuesday doesn't include the Badger State.

Super Tuesday, the biggest primary day of the year. 24 states making their decisions on Democratic and Republican nominations for President.

But Wisconsin isn't one of those states.

Apparently, Ethel Goodwin didn't get the message when she saw a Today's TMJ4 story on Super Tuesday.

"We were listening to the news and they were saying that Super Tuesday, and all the state, I figured that included Wisconsin," said Goodwin.

"Probably, I just misunderstood."

She wasn't alone at her local polling place, 53rd Street School on Milwaukee's north side.

"There were about six to 10 other people standing outside waiting to go in, also, at 6:30."

All getting in line early...two weeks early.

"They just let us know that Wisconsin wasn't in Super Tuesday, and as far as they knew, it was going to be February 19th."

And Ethel's set her alarm for that date.

"I'll be there again at 6:30 in the morning."
