It's estimated that voter turnout is at about 20 percent in Wausau and between 20 and 25 percent in Stevens Point, where the Mayor's seat is up for election.
The Supreme Court race between Justice David Prosser and Assistant Attorney General Joanne Kloppenberg may be mobilizing voters.
It's expected that the legality of Governor Walker's collective bargaining legislation could end up being ruled on by the winner.
"I think people have been drawn into paying attention a lot more to what's going on. There's always going to be a correlation with the Supreme Court candidates and what's going on down in Madison, so that's drawing a lot of attention here in Stevens Point", said Stevens Point City Clerk, John Moe.
We'll have up to the minute election data from across North Central Wisconsin, as the precincts report once the polls close.
Polls remain open until 8 p.m.
