Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is fighting for his political life in a recall contest against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) as voters head to the polls in the Badger State on Tuesday.

The race comes as a rematch after the pair faced off in 2010 in the match-up that ultimately elected Walker to office.

HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reports:

In addition to the marquee gubernatorial recall, there are five other elections on Tuesday. The GOP lieutenant governor is fighting to hold onto her seat, as are three GOP state senators. One other state senate seat is open, after Sen. Pam Galloway (R-Wausau) decided to resign when it became clear she was going to face a recall. If Democrats win any one of the state senate seats, they will gain the majority in the chamber.

Below, a live blog of the latest developments to unfold.
