Voters will decide between Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock and Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet in the race for a 10-year term on the Supreme Court.  The two debated Friday in Madison.

Screnock is backed by conservatives while Dallet is the choice of liberals. The winner will replace retiring Justice Michael Gableman who is part of the court's 5-2 conservative majority.

A constitutional amendment to eliminate the office of state treasurer is also on the ballot. Approval of the amendment would delete the position, which has had its duties greatly reduced in recent years.

In northwestern Wisconsin, there are city council races in Superior and Ashland, a mayoral race in Washburn, school board races in Superior and Spooner, and a few contested county board races in every county.

The Maple School District has an operating referendum on the ballot, and there are local referendum questions in Oliver and the Town of Superior.

Oliver's referendum asks whether the village board should allow village streets to be used as ATV and UTV routes.

The Town of Superior has three questions, asking whether the town clerk should be appointed, whether the town should spend up to $25,000 to buy land for a new fire hall, and whether the town should build a new $1.8 million fire hall.

Snow and rain forecast across the state on Tuesday could affect turnout. Polling places can be found at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/FindMyPollingPlace.
