Tuesday is Election Day in Wisconsin, as voters are heading to the polls to select a new state senator and a new state representative. The special elections will decide who will fill the two seats left vacant by state legislators that departed last year to work in Governor Scott Walker’s administration.
In State Senate District 1, Republican Andre Jacque is facing Democrat Caleb Frostman. Jacque is currently a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, while Frostman is the Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation. District 1 includes Door and Kewaunee Counties, and parts of Brown, Manitowoc, Calumet, and Outgamie Counties.
In State Assembly District 42, candidates on the ballot include Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd and Republican Jon Plumer. That district is just north of Madison and includes parts of Fond Du Lac and Green Lake Counties.
It should be noted that both of these districts will open back up for election in November.
Polls stay open until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
