Spring 2017 Statewide Election


Presidential elections are not the only ones that count, and in fact, local and state elections can sometimes have the biggest impact. Today is a statewide election for various state and local offices for judges and school board representatives–only four positions on your Milwaukee ballot are running opposed. There is also a referendum in Milwaukee County on today’s ballot. All offices up for election on today’s ballot are non-partisan. Click the candidates names to go to to learn more about each candidate.
