MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Official results show that turnout in last month’s election in Wisconsin was just shy of 55 percent of the voting-age population.

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board certified the election results on Monday. The final numbers show that just over 2.4 million people voted in the governor’s race in which Scott Walker won a second term over Democratic challenger Mary Burke.

That comes out to 54.57 percent of the voting-age population. That is the highest turnout for a midterm governor’s election since at least 1950.

Walker won with 52.2 percent of the vote compared with 46.5 percent for Burke.

Libertarian Robert Burke got less than 1 percent of the vote, while write-in candidate state Rep. Brett Hulsey did even worse. He got just 52 votes total.
