MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic voters in Wisconsin wanting to cause mischief for Republicans have some tantalizing possibilities to cross over and cast ballots in the upcoming primary.
There's nothing illegal about a Democrat voting in the Republican primary, or vice versa, in Wisconsin and 16 other states.
But, at least publicly, party leaders disavow the practice known as tactical voting as unseemly and nearly impossible to pull off.
Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate calls it an old wives tale that never happens. And Republican Party executive director Mark Jefferson says he's never seen it play a role in Wisconsin.
Wisconsin's primary is Sept. 14.
