Fall primaries coming soon in Wisconsin.
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The fall primaries are less than a week away and the ballot may look different than ones you’re used to.
Each ballot is set up by party, meaning you can vote within the Republican or Democrat party, but not both.
For example, if you vote between State Senator Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson for Republican U.S. Senate candidate, you will not be able to vote between the 8 democratic candidates for Wisconsin Governor.
“Another thing that’s complicated with the partisan ballot is we have a party preference at the top of the ballot, which is you can choose your preference on what political party you go with. However, that doesn’t cast a ballot or a vote for the actual candidates. You still need to go into that contest, or those contests, and vote for the individual candidates,” said La Crosse County Clerk Ginny Dankmeyer.
Polling places open next Tuesday morning at 7 and will close at 8 that night.
The fall general election is November 6th.
