The Spring Primary election is Tuesday and there are a few things you should know before heading to the polls.
For the first time in 2020, Wisconsinites will have the opportunity to have their voices heard.
During Tuesday's Spring Primary, voters will help determine which two candidates will have the opportunity to run for a seat on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court in the April 7 Spring election. Here are the candidates running for that position:
- Daniel Kelly
- Jill J. Karofsky
- Ed Fallone
Milwaukee voters will also see mayoral candidates on their ballot. The candidates voters will be able to choose from Tuesday are:
- Paul Rasky
- Tom Barrett
- T. Anthony Zielinski
- Lena Taylor
The position of Milwaukee County Executive is also up for grabs. There are four candidates running for this position when you're at the polls, these will be your options:
- Purnima Nath
- Theodore A. Lipscomb, Sr.
- Chris Larson
- David Crowley
Additionally, voters in some school districts and municipalities around Wisconsin will help narrow the field of candidates for school board positions and other local offices. These school and local government officials represent your community, your neighbors, and you. The decisions made during this election, can have a huge impact on your community.
Voters living in the 7th Congressional District will decide which candidates will run for the vacant seat in the House of Representatives. This open seat was vacated by U.S. Representative Sean Duffy.
Due to the fact that less people typically turn out for the Spring Primary, votes tend to have much more of a influence on the final result.
In order to vote on Tuesday, voters will need to present an acceptable form of photo ID such as a passport or drivers license.
