LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT/AP) - There's no statewide race on Tuesday's ballot, but voters will have their say about their local government and schools.
In all, there are nearly 6,000 candidates for Wisconsin residents to choose from on Election Day, for positions like county board supervisors, mayors and others. They're running for nearly 3,800 offices. Voters across the state will collectively decide 101 local referendum questions.
The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board predicts voter turn-out throughout the state to reach 12-percent on Tuesday. In comparison, last April's Election Day turn-out hit 20-percent, as voters faced big races like the state Supreme Court.
There are several school and area referendums on the ballot. Here's more information on area referendums:
- La Crosse school referendum
- West Salem School District Referendum (2 questions)
- Tomah School District referendum
- Sparta residents asked to re-evaluate dry city status
