Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Tuesday's historic recall election was the third in U.S History.

Voters headed to the polls in droves to be a part of it. Party activists on both sides of the isle spent Tuesday reaching out to voters, urging them to get to the polls.

Polling officials in Superior and across the state compared the turnout to that of a Presidential race.

In this highly contested race, many voters weren't bothered by the long lines at the polls to have their voices heard.

Some polling places across the state even ran out of "I Voted" stickers.

Nearly 70–percent of registered voters in Douglas County turned out to vote in the recall election.
