Some Milwaukee Republicans are attempting Tuesday to vote in their party's primary races while also writing in the name of Democratic Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., elections officials said.
"There are cases where it's happened," Milwaukee Election Commission director Neil Albrecht said.
Under Wisconsin law, a voter can choose to participate in either the Democratic or Republican primaries, but can't do both on the same ballot.
Clarke, a conservative Democrat, is running in that party's sheriff primary against challenger and Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews, who holds views more typically associated with Democrats and liberals. Clarke is running for sheriff for the fourth time.
There is no GOP candidate for sheriff in Milwaukee County.
