South Milwaukeeans yet again turned out in big numbers for an election.

Tuesday’s turnout: 70.6% of registered voters, according to unofficial results from the city clerk’s office. There were more than 8,400 ballots cast on Tuesday.

Here are the results. Some local highlights:

  • Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch tallied 51.7% of the votes in South Milwaukee, to 45.9% for Mary Burke and John Lehman.
  • Brad Schimel topped Susan Happ in the attorney general’s race locally, 49.4% to 43.6%.
  • Dan Sebring beat U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, 49.8% to 42.3%, in South Milwaukee, even as Moore scored a big victory across the district.
  • State Sen. Chris Larson beat challenger Jason “Red” Arnold 48.2% to 45.9% in South Milwaukee.

Thanks to everyone who got out to the polls and made their voices heard. And thanks to City Clerk Jim Shelenske, his City Hall team and all of the pollworkers for their efforts. They do important work, and they do it well.
