MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Latest on Tuesday’s primary election in Wisconsin (all times local):

11:10 a..m.

A website voters in Wisconsin can use to find out where to vote crashed during Tuesday’s primary election.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission directed voters to use a backup website, http://www.gettothepolls.com, while they tried to fix the MyVote Wisconsin site.

The commission said that it provides official polling place data to the backup website, which is run by the Voting Information Project. That is a partnership between states and Democracy Works. The commission said having that as a backup is part of its contingency plan for a failure in the MyVote website.

Tuesday’s primary included a three-way statewide race for Wisconsin Supreme Court and contests on both the Republican and Democratic side for an open 7th Congressional District seat in northern Wisconsin. There are also numerous local elections. The two top vote-getters in the Supreme Court race will square off in the April 7 general election. Winners in the congressional race to replace retired Republican U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy will face one another in a May 12 special election.
