Election Day Arrives In Wisconsin


It's spring election day in Wisconsin.

A bevy of state and local races are on the ballot. Statewide, voters will decide on Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, where Circuit Judges Rebecca Dallet and Michael Screnock are running.

There's also a vote to amend the state Constitution to eliminate the Office of State Treasurer and various Circuit Court Judge races.

Rhinelander will elect a new mayor and there will be at least one new city council member.

Locally, there are three school referendums in the region, at Merrill, Phillips and Prentice, along with a number of contested school board races.

Most county boards in the region have contested races. The Wisconsin Elections Commission reports turnout is generally between 15 and 20 percent of eligible voters, though it hit a high of 34 percent for a State Supreme Court race in 2011.

We'll have initial results shortly after 10 p.m. tonight, on the website and again Wednesday morning.
