Door and Kewaunee County voters will get their chance to weigh in on the candidates they would like to see face off on Tuesday in the June 12 special election for Wisconsin Senate District 1. Republicans have the only contested race with State Representative Andre Jacque facing businessman Alex Renard. Former Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman is the only Democrat in the race. All polling locations in Door and Kewaunee County will be open Tuesday, including three in Sturgeon Bay. City clerk Stephanie Reinhardt says there were talks to consolidate polling locations like other communities in the district but ultimately decided against it.
The special election called for by Governor Scott Walker is to fill the seat vacated by Frank Lasee last December. Voters can head to the polls between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
