MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin election officials say turnout is on pace to meet predictions of about 2.5 million voters or about 56.5 percent of the voting-age population.

If turnout hits that prediction, it will be the highest on record for a midterm election.

The Government Accountability Board reports Tuesday that turnout is heavier than normal in some areas, and only minor problems have been reported.

About 96 percent of requested absentee ballots tracked by the board have been returned so far. They are due by Friday, and those could come into play in close races.

The board says reported problems include voters being asked to show photo identification although none is needed, political signs being too close to polling places and issues with voter registration.
