Fall Election 2018: It’s Election Day

It’s Election Day today with federal, state and county partisan offices on the ballot.

Of special note locally are:

  • County Sheriff — This race is a rematch — with a twist — from 2018 when incumbent David Beth faced a challenge from David Zoerner in the Republican primary. This time around Zoerner is running as a Democrat.
  • Paris residents will vote on a referendum asking if the office of town clerk/treasurer should become appointed rather than elected.
  • 61st Assembly District — Incumbent state Rep. Samantha Kerkman (R-Salem) is being challenged by Gina Walkington (D-Bristol). Most of Western Kenosha County (except for Wheatland) is in the 61st.
  • 21st State Senate District — Incumbent Van Wanggaard (R-Racine) is being challenged by Lori Hawkins (D-Bristol). Most of Western Kenosha County (except for Wheatland) is in the 21st.
  • 32nd Assembly District — Incumbent state Rep. Tyler August (r) is being challenged by Katherine Gaulke (D). Wheatland is in the 32nd District.
  • A county wide referendum on whether medical marijuana use should be legalized.
