Presidential, State and County Races To Be Decided Nov. 3Issue Date: October 28, 2020
Marinette School Referendum Also On The Ballot
On Tuesday, Nov. 3, voters in Marinette County and all across America who have not already cast absentee or early voting ballots will be going to the polls in their respective districts to choose this nation's president and vice president for the next four years and fill numerous federal, state and county partisan positions. In the Marinette School District they will also be deciding the fate of the proposed $30.92 million "right sizing" project.
All polling places in Wisconsin will open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and close at 8 p.m. and all are accessible to disabled and elderly voters. Because of the large number of mail in ballots to be counted, and the high interest in several of this year's election outcomes, some results, including the presidential race, may not be known on election night.
For the top office in the land contenders are incumbent President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on the Republican ticket and challengers Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris on the Democrat ticket. Others seeking to win the president and vice president positions are Don Blankenship and William Mohr for the Constitution Party, Jo Jorgensen and Jeremy Spike Cohen for the Libertarian Party, and Brian Carroll and Amar Patel for the American Socialist Party.
Neither of Wisconsin's two Senate seats in Washington is up for election this year. Federal positions to be filled from this area in addition to those of president and vice president are for Representative to Congress in the 8th Congressional District, where incumbent Mike Gallagher, a Republican, faces a challenge from Amanda Stuck, a Democrat.
Voters in State Senate District 12 will choose between Ed Vocke, a Democrat, and Mary Czaja-Felzkowski, a Republican, for the seat formerly held by Tom Tiffany. Tiffany is on the ballot for return to the office of United States Representative to Congress for the 7th Congressional District of Wisconsin that he won in a special election in May after Representative Sean Duffy resigned.
Voters in State Senate District 30 will choose between Republican Eric Wimberger and Democrat Jonathan Hansen to fill the seat being vacated by incumbent Dave Hansen, who did not seek re-election.
In races for Wisconsin State Assembly seats incumbent John Nygren, a Republican, faces a challenge from Karl Jeger, a Democrat, for the 89th District Representative position, and incumbent Jeff Mursau, a Republican, is unopposed for return to office for the 36th District Representative position.
All contenders for the four Marinette County partisan positions to be filled are Republican incumbents seeking return to office without opposition. They are District Attorney DeShea Morrow, County Clerk Kathy Brandt, County Treasurer Bev Noffke and Register of Deeds Renee Miller.
