NewsChannel 5 says turnout for election at 13%; that bodes ill for defeat of divisive referendum

NewsChannel 5 reports that the total turnout for today's EnglishOnly referendum was about 13%, which bodes ill for defeat of the measure.

Madison was particularly busy after work, which also bodes ill for referendum opponents. Most voters were white and African-American.

In addition, African-American voters are voting strongly for the referendum.
