UNDATED (WSAU) Four candidates are getting most of the publicity for tomorrow’s elections in Wisconsin – but almost 10,000 people are on ballots statewide.
Reid Magney of the state Government Accountability Board says there are 9,587 people running for almost 6,800 offices – mostly local government and school board seats. There are also 76 referendums of various types up tomorrow.
There are two statewide races – both of which have gotten lots of publicity. State Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack faces a challenge from Marquette law professor Ed Fallone. And state public school Superintendent Tony Evers is challenged by state Assembly Republican Don Pridemore. Both incumbents are going for their second terms.
Magney says about one-of-every-five eligible voters will go to the polls tomorrow, and that’s about the normal for an April election. It’s the final statewide balloting planned for this year.
