The fall election has produced Minnesota's lowest voter turnout since 1986.
Secretary of State Mark Ritchie says Minnesota's slacking numbers follow a national trend of fall-off in years when presidential candidates aren't on the ballot.
Stephanopoulos said no questions were off-limits for the interview, which took place less than 24 hours after a grand jury decided not to indict the 28-year-old officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown this summer.
The shooting of the black man by the white police officer has inflamed racial tensions.
Martha McSally has asked a federal court judge to dismiss a lawsuit by Democratic Rep. Ron Barber that seeks to stop the official certification of election results.
McSally has claimed victory in the 2nd Congressional District race in southern Arizona after leading Barber, the incumbent, with 161 votes.
Several emails show Walker suggesting minor changes to press releases, writing his own responses, and pushing back against news stories he did not view as favorable.
In an April 1, 2010, email sent to his chief of staff Tom Nardelli, Walker outlines his media strategy and tells Nardelli: "No one should be commenting on anything until we have a chance to talk and until we agree on our message."
In another email string two weeks later, Walker, his campaign staff and his county staff try to quickly react to questions about why he wasn't doing public service announcements about donating blood.
Even though the emails come from personal computers of county workers, any material dubbed to be non-public, such as private employee information, personal medical information and attorney-client communication, was removed.
A John Doe investigation is Wisconsin's version of a grand jury probe where information is tightly controlled and investigators go about their work in secret.
A second investigation began in 2012 and focused on alleged illegal coordination between Walker's recall campaign and more than two dozen conservative groups.
