MADISON (WKOW) – Polls will open at  7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 for the spring election.

There is one statewide race for Supreme Court between Judge Michael Screnock and Judge Rebecca Dallet, and a referendum to determine the future of the state treasurer.

Voters will also select from a long list of local candidates, including a race for Madison School Board, Dane County Board seats and mayoral races in Verona, Stoughton and Edgerton.  

Election officials say spring voting tends to have a much lower turnout – and some polling experts say, because of that, individual voters can have a far greater influence on the outcome. Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell expects turnout in Dane County at around 40 percent.
