Citizens voted on the name of four different machines: a quad axle brine truck, a trackless bike path plow, a dual wing plow truck, and a loader with plow and wing.

"The turnout was fantastic!" a spokesperson for the City of Madison said in a statement. "We received well over 3,000 votes for each of the four pieces of equipment. We'd like to thank Wisconsin Salt Wise for hosting this election for us. And thank you one and all for participating in this election, from submitting names to voting."

Here are the results:

Quad Axle Brine Truck

Loader with Plow and Wing

Winner: "Seymour Pavement" with a total of 1,460 votes.

"Seymour sounds more like a name for a dentist than a plow truck, which made this was a close race to the end. But voters kept feeding ballots to him and then, suddenly, Seymour won!"

Last year the city of Madison held a contest to name its trash and recycling compactors. The electric trash compactor was named "Rosie the Rubbisher" and the recycling compactor was named "Stone Cold Squeeze Often".
