WOODVILLE, SPRING VALLEY & ELMWOOD, WI – The voting for the Mid-term Elections were brisk in our area, statewide and nationwide on Tuesday, November 06, 2018.

In Woodville at the Village Hall in the Pioneer Building there were 286 ballots cast by 3:40 p.m. The reports from the election officials stated that there were 15 people in line to vote at 6:45 a.m., 15 minutes before the Woodville poll opened.

Voting was reported as brisk at the Spring Valley and Elmwood Village Halls and in Gilman Township there were 316 ballots cast by 4:00 p.m.

At the Spring Lake Lutheran Church where an Election Day Dinner has been a tradition for over 100 years they ran out food to serve to voters before 1 p.m. and they were due to serve until 2 p.m.

That is a local indication of how brisk voter turnout is for this 2018 Mid-term Election.

Gateway News will publish all of the local, state and national elections results for our representatives next week in the November 15 editions of the Woodville Leader and Sun-Argus newspapers. Aren’t we all glad it is over? Yes, we are!
