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.
