Do you think it doesn’t matter if you cast your ballot during the April 7 local spring elections?
Voters who participate in these local elections are electing officials who have the biggest say on issues that impact each of us all daily.
Whether you’re voting on school board, town board, village board or city council races, these future representatives will be making decisions about roads, the education of our children, future development in the area and more.
These issues have a direct and immediate impact on each of us, so it’s important to choose our local officials wisely when the time comes.
Trouble is, voter turnout in these spring elections is always light. That’s a problem, as the best candidates may be left off the winner’s list in the end.
Take a moment and put Tuesday’s elections on your calendar. Then take a few minutes to research the candidates and cast your ballot.
It’s an important task that each of us should take seriously.
Not only are the local elections important on Tuesday’s ballot, voters will also be selecting a new Wisconsin Supreme Court justice and the superintendent of the Department of Public Instruction as well. These two positions also have a great deal of power when it comes to decisions that impact us all.
Select your favorite candidate for those open seats as well. The direction of the state over the next few years is at stake.
