20 percent turnout predicted for Supreme Court election

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s elections chief says he expects 20 percent turnout for the April 7 election.

Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy said Monday he doesn’t expect there to be much of a change from the 2013 spring election when turnout was also just over 20 percent.

The top race on the ballot this year is for state Supreme Court, where Justice Ann Walsh Bradley is seeking a third term against challenger Rock County Circuit Judge James Daley.

There is also a constitutional amendment to change how the chief justice is selected, allowing justices on the court to make the choice rather than have it go to the most senior member.

There are a host of other local elections which could increase turnout in pockets of the state.
