Live Blog: November 2012 Wisconsin Election Results

Patch will have a team of editors and reporters in the community covering Tuesday's election in real-time in our live blog.

After more than a year of hype, hundreds of speeches and millions spent on campaign ads, the 2012 election is finally here — and Patch is covering it live in a real-time Election Day Blog.

We have more than two dozen reporters and editors throughout southeastern Wisconsin Tuesday, talking to voters, election officials and others — and providing updates and results in the blog until the final races are called.

We also want to hear from you, so make sure your post a comment in the blog. Tell us how you voted for and why; share your experiences at the polls; or just weigh in on the big election of 2012.


Here are the latest results for key races for Waukesha County and Wisconsin. Presidential results only represent votes in Wisconsin. Polls in Wisconsin close at 8 p.m. Central time. Once a winner is announced, the candidate's name will appear in bold.

LAST UPDATE: 1:19 p.m. Wednesday

Romney's record as Mass. governor. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/01/mitt-romney-massachusetts-budget-_n_2051922.html?utm_hp_ref=politics
Friends of he GOP 2012 November 06, 2012 at 02:30 AM
You learn a lot about a man's character during adversity.......... When freshmen assembly member Paul Farrow had a question on why protective services were exempt from collect bargaining Farrow went to the Republican Party leaders for his answers. What did freshmen assembly member Chris Kapenga do? Kapenga was the star of the gossip columnist Daniel Bice's articles and Jeff Flemming's loser of the week on the Charlie Sykes show. Kapenga openly ran his mouth calling key members in his own party and the governor a sell out. I believe this is why every Republican has turned their back on Kapenga and not endorsed him. We need a mature senator that can handle conflict without starring in the gossip column. That's why I am supporting Paul Farrow for senate and you should also.

Fraudulent voting being discovered. Palm Beach Florida with their absentee voting ballots and now Penn. With touch screen voting machines. Think time has come to call in the U.N. to investigate. Observe Penn. Fraud. http://youtu.be/oOj2IPulNPA
Craig November 06, 2012 at 06:18 PM
Wait....I thought voter fraud didn't exist? Guess the poor bastards in Fl should have voter ID rules?
Bernard Forand November 06, 2012 at 06:35 PM
@ Craig; Again right over your head. ID’s do not matter in these scenarios II have presented here. Try actually reading the comment. Might help.. A man originally reported to have been working for the Republican Party of Virginia was arrested by the Rockingham County, Va., Sheriff’s Office on Thursday and charged with attempting to destroy voter registration forms by tossing them into a dumpster behind a shopping center in Harrisonburg, Va. “Prosecutors charged him with four counts of destruction of voter registration applications, eight counts of failing to disclose voter registration applications and one count of obstruction of justice,” according to a report late Thursday afternoon from TPM’s Ryan Reilly . More charges could be forthcoming, according to officials. This is but the tip of the iceberg. Odd it is always with the right wing nuts as the source for lies, deceits and abuse of our civil rights. Little wonder they are for deregulation. Illuminates the same ideologies of criminals. http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/gop-voter-registration-scandal-widens-prosecutors-file-criminal-charges Having problems with the reply click so Craig try to figure out where it goes.
Craig November 06, 2012 at 06:52 PM
Bernard I can tell you where to put it, but I doubt you know how to figure it out. I don't care what you wrote, I made a point about voter ID. Reading everythink you post is not tolerable for me, as I have a weak stomach for your spin. Weren't you claiming there is no voter fraud just a few months ago? When I cast my vote this morning for the right candidate, I noticed a name of a dead neighbor still on the registered voter list- I could go back later and cast a vote in his name because there is no ID check. I won't do that, but there is no guarantee someone else won't either. This is where ID does matter. I am sure this idea is over your head because hey, there is no voter fraud!
Bernard Forand November 06, 2012 at 07:22 PM
@ Craig like I said whoosh right over your head. No wonder you have no knowledge of what you spew. I did not disagree with voter ID. Perhaps you did not read that comment as well. Your just interested in blah, blahing. I said photo ID’s can be handed out at the voter registration office, at no cost for it is the freedom to vote after all. Some people do not have a driver’s license and do not want one. Some people are not physically able to jump up and go get a photo ID. Some people will not be able to make it to the polls. Like our first responders out in the fields today. Therefore absentee ballots will require photo ID’s as well, as they are not presently. Handicap individuals in hospitals and living assistance, for a couple of examples, will require a Mobil photo ID vehicle to make those rounds. As for your stomach; That seems to be troubling for quite sometime. Perhaps a genetic thingy.
Amy November 07, 2012 at 02:42 AM
how the f can this be with only 4% of the vote in and our polls just closing 40 min ago???
Amy November 07, 2012 at 02:42 AM
Romney is over 56% and is losing????
Red Recking Crew November 07, 2012 at 06:07 AM
Why is only 49% of Waukesha County reported? With almost 400k, this can push Romney over the edge.
Luke November 07, 2012 at 06:13 AM
Good to see Rob Hutton taking that seat.
Luke November 07, 2012 at 06:34 AM
Waukesha was having trouble again.
Bernard Forand November 07, 2012 at 12:46 PM
Its not luck to comprehend another’s comments. You merely have to read them. You must be republican, with their half backed false facts on every issue. Amy is befuddled. That’s what happens when there is a handicap in one’s ability to comprehend. Republicans lost because of this obnoxious focused vision on delusions’. Serious make over is in order. Perhaps a split will occur. Intelligent republicans will want to dispose of their handicap knuckle dragging bigots. Once again we may see the revitalization of the grand party with Big Stick Teddy leading the way..

"Open letter to the center of the GOP. Please re- assert your authority over the miserable right and help the Dems govern ! Everyone can help ! " ...........Tweet from a local Menomonee Falls RINO ..............

What a night! We stopped Republicans dead in their tracks in competitive governors races in New Hampshire, West Virginia, Montana, Puerto Rico, and Missouri (with our candidate in Washington State currently leading), retained the Senate, and best of all – we won an incredible Electoral College sweep for President Obama! Megyn Kelly is an example of the rift that is beginning to expanding within the Fox tabloid media and the republican party. A Model that they tested with the republican party has failed in a landslide. California experienced a democrat Tsunami. Not all republicans are as well herded sheep as the tabloids have made them out to be. Emergence of a progressive republican party will arise from the muck and mire of the right wing’s failures. Megyn will rise to replace the willy nilly Wallace.
W . Benz November 07, 2012 at 09:25 PM
Who's Megyn Kelly ? is she on tv 6 .
Bernard Forand November 08, 2012 at 04:03 PM
Craig has a fetish for his ass. Ahh but then he is a republican. Nothing new there. Off on another delusional illusional of make believe facts. DUH nothing is free! That’s a mythical Rushing Roving Fox chasing the melodies of their pied piper. They couldn’t get the fiddler for they OWE too much for what they have not paid for. Multitrillions of UNappropriated taxes that they keep handing over to the democrats. Little facts like that which is beyond your comprehension is why you knuckle draggers lost. What simple facts democrats were very well aware of, republicans were totally ignorant of them. We need a greater education of these knuckle draggers. A blight on our USA, they be…

Change is a long time in coming. Globalization is promoting similar forces, of the Civil Rights movements of the past. Humanity is slowly gaining in its demands for the suppression of inequality. Technology, by its nature, demonstrates our abilities to communicate solutions to necessities. Standards of life from all segments, are raised. Evolutionary forces dictate our fate. Opposition to the science of evolution may be greater than the change but if the change is a necessity of survival, it will continue to emerge until it is assimilated. Observing present political diversity within the republican party, demonstrates how evolution manifest itself. Rifts and segmentations’ become more pronounced. Instability increases. Fracturing occurs promoting the birth of two or more political entities
