Primaries planned for multiple races

Print Article

ROCK COUNTY, Wis. - State, county and city races will all see primary races Feb. 20 ahead of the April 3 spring general election.

Those in Beloit will see primary candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court and School District of Beloit Board of Education, while City of Janesville, Town of Janesville and Town of Rock residents will see a primary race for District 26 of the Rock County Board.

• Supreme Court:

Madison-based attorney Tim Burns, Milwaukee County Judge Rebecca Dallet and Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock will face off for a chance on the April ballot, with the lowest vote-getter to be eliminated from contention. Dallet hopes to make out the field's independent middle ground, while Burns seeks to win over progressives contrasted against Screnock's conservative backing. The candidates are seeking a 10-year term on the state Supreme Court term.

• School District of Beloit:

With five candidates in the field for two available board of education seats, one candidate will be eliminated in the primary election. Voters will select the top four candidates who will move on to the April 3 general election. Newcomers Kyle Larsen, Kathy Crawford, Sarah Weiss, David Wilson and Otis Johnson are set to seek office. The terms of former board president Lisa Anderson-Levy and Dennis Baskin are up, with both not seeking re-election. The two seats available on the board of education each carry a three-year term.

• County Board District 26

Incumbent Dave Homan will face Mario Bullock and Vicki Brown for the district that spans Wards 5 and 6 in Janesville and portions of Janesville and Rock townships.

The final day to apply to have an absentee ballot sent to you is Feb. 15.

Residents who are not registered can do so at the City Clerk-Treasurer's Office at City Hall, 100 State St.

Those who request a ballot can cast their votes on the same visit, according to city election staff.

As in past years, photo identification is required for absentee and in-person voting. For a complete list of accepted ID forms, visit bringitwisconsin.com.

Polling places in Beloit will be reduced for the primary election.

Wards 1 through 12 will vote at the Beloit Historical Society, 845 Hackett St. Wards 13 through 25 will vote at Central Christian Church, 2460 Milwaukee Road.
