MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Candidates for the spring non-partisan elections have one more week to submit their nomination papers.
There are two statewide contests this spring, for State Supreme Court Justice and for state public school Superintendent.
Candidates for both those posts must submit at least two-thousand valid nominating signatures to the state elections’ agency by the end of the business day next Wednesday.
Those running for thousands of local government and school board offices have the same deadline for submitting their nominating signatures to their local clerks.
In most cases, offices with three-or-more candidates will have primary elections on February 19th, and the two top vote-getters will advance to the general election on April second.
For the Supreme Court, lemon law attorney Vince Megna and Marquette law professor Ed Fallone have announced that they’ll run against Justice Pat Roggensack, who’s up for another 10-year term.
State Assembly Republican Don Pridemore of Hartford has announced a bid against School Superintendent Tony Evers, who’s seeking his second four-year term.
