MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Turnout for Wisconsin's primary elections two weeks ago was even lower than state election officials predicated.

The state Government Accountability Board had predicted turnout would be 15 percent of eligible voters. The agency released figures Tuesday showing the official turnout was 12.7 percent.
The GAB said 552,342 people cast votes out of a voting-age population of 4,348,307.
