It wouldn't be Wisconsin if there wasn't another election around the corner! February 20th is the Spring Primary.
Do you have an acceptable photo ID? Know where your polling place is? What exactly are you voting for anyway?
MyVote Wisconsin is a great resource to find the answer to all those questions.
While local offices will vary by location, the one thing we're all voting for is State Supreme Court. Sitting Justice Michael Gableman is not running for re-election. Three candidates are running to replace him and the top two vote-getters next week will advance to the general election on April 3rd: one conservative Michael Screnock, and two liberals Rebecca Dallet and Tim Burns. Supreme Court elections are officially non-partisan but have in practice become more partisan over the last decade. Screnock has been supported by the Republican Party while Dallet and Burns have received backing from Democrats.
Michael Screnock - Screnock was first appointed to the Sauk County Circuit Court by Gov. Scott Walker (R) in 2015 and was elected to a full term in 2016. Screnock's previous experience includes time spent in private practice and, prior to earning his law degree, in municipal management
Rebecca Dallet - Dallet was first elected to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court in 2008 and won re-election in 2014. As of the 2018 election, she still holds the seat. Dallet's previous experience includes 11 years as a prosecutor in the offices of the Milwaukee County District Attorney and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin as well as three years spent teaching law at Marquette University.
Tim Burns - An attorney with experience in insurance-related law, Burns has not previously run for elected office.
