The Wisconsin Elections Commission estimates that voter turnout for spring elections (local non-partisan and judicial races) could range as low as 13 to 18 percent of voting-age citizens.
These are vital elections, and nothing is more important to a healthy democracy than voting. Please make sure that you are ready to vote.
Not voting may be more a function of lack of information/understanding than of apathy. Voters need a “big picture” look at coming elections.
Feb. 20 is the first election date. It's a non-partisan primary to choose the final candidates for spring elections.
April 3 is the spring election with balloting for District 4 Court of Appeals judges, Branch 3 Circuit Court judge, Branch 7 Circuit Court judge; town and village boards; school board members; county board of supervisors; and municipal offices.
There will be fall partisan primary Aug. 14 and general elections Nov. 6.
Remember to vote!
