Turnout in Wisconsin's midterm election was the highest on record, topping out at over 57 percent.  

The hard-fought race for governor drove people to vote Tuesday, with the race for U.S. Senate close behind. 

Based on unofficial totals, nearly 2.7 million people cast ballots. 

That comes to 57.2 percent of the voting-age population. 

In Barron County, 76.2% of registered voters cast a ballot.
