MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) Many of the political district boundaries in Central Wisconsin have changed through recent “redistricting,” leaving some voters still unsure of which candidates will be on their ballots when they go to the polls in less than two weeks.
Many city clerks like Deb Hall in Marshfield say they’ve been working to minimize the confusion caused by redistricting. According to Hall, “This is the first election that the (state) senate and assembly districts are affecting us in many, many years.” Hall says the candidates themselves are especially concerned about voter confusion over redistricting based on what they’ve heard on the campaign trail.
Longtime politicians Julie Lassa and Amy Sue Vruwink will no longer be on the ballot in Marshfield, and the city will now be split into two state assembly races with challenger Paul Knoff running against incumbent Scott Suder, and newcomers John Spiros and Dennis Halkoski facing-off.
There are no state senate races on the ballot in Marshfield for this election cycle.
Hall suggest voters go to https://myvote.wi.gov to find out more information about which voting district they’re in, the representatives for their location, and other detailed voting information.
