February Primaries bring voters out in La Crosse

District 7 city council seat on ballot

Polling places are open across Wisconsin.

The 2017 Spring Primary election is Tuesday. The polls opened at seven in the morning, giving voters the chance to influence April’s races.

Ballots across the state include the race for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. The city of La Crosse only has one additional race; District 7’s city council seat.

While the primaries in February typically have low voter turnout, polling officials say there has been a good amount of people out to vote today.

“The weather’s been good outside. It’s not like November, obviously, but we are getting some people showing up, so it’s good,” said La Crosse District 7 Chief Inspector Bill Newburg.

The polls are open until 8 Tuesday night. You will get a chance to cast a ballot as long as you are in line by 8 p.m.
