election dayThe spring general election will be held Tuesday, April 7. Polls are open statewide from 7 am until 8 pm. More information on registration and voting in Wisconsin is here.

Photo identification is not required to vote in this election, but will be required to vote in future elections.

One statewide race is on the ballot — incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley faces challenger Rock County Circuit Court Judge James Daley.

Voters will also be asked to vote in a referendum on the election of the Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice. Currently, the longest-serving justice is chief justice. The proposed amendment would select a chief justice through an election by the majority of the Court. The elected chief justice would serve a two-year term.

There is one state legislative race on the ballot — former Representative Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) faces token write-in opposition to represent the 20th Senate District (Cedarburg, Port Washington, West Bend). The seat became vacant when State Senator Glenn Grothman was elected to Congress last November.

Voters in Madison will choose between incumbent Paul Soglin and challenger Scott Resnick, both graduates of UW-Madison, for mayor.
