Races for State Superintendent of Public Instruction and local offices will be on the ballot Tuesday in Wisconsin's spring election.

Deborah Kerr and Jill Underly are running for the superintendent's office in the only statewide race. Incumbent Carolyn Stanford Taylor is not running.

There are also two court races on regional ballots. Rick Cveykus and Gregory B. Gill Jr. are running for Wisconsin Appeals Court District 3, which covers all of northern Wisconsin.

In Bayfield County, there's a rare challenge of a sitting judge, with Vincent Scott Kurta running against incumbent John P. Anderson.

Ashland County has a referendum on whether to allow the county to exceed its maximum levy increase to provide additional funding for public safety, road work, County Extension services, the Office on Aging, and Health and Human Services.

There are also contested races for the Superior City Council's 10th District seat, Maple School Board, Hayward Town Board, and Round Lake Town Board.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters will need to present a photo ID. Face masks are recommended but not required.

Voters can find their polling place at myvote.wi.gov. In the City of Ashland, all wards will vote at the Bretting Community Center, 400 4th Avenue West, and absentee ballots will be processed at City Hall.
