Voting light in primary

As expected, it was a light turnout last week in Sheboygan County for the primary vote for the April 5 general election.

Countywide, only one of every six registered voters cast a ballot in the Tuesday election, with roughly the same turnout in the city of Plymouth.

The only contest on the ballot countywide was a three-way race for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

While it was a close race statewide, the finish between incumbent Justice Rebecca Bradley and state Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg was less so in Sheboygan County and the city of Plymouth.

Where it was a 45 percent to 43 percent edge for Bradley over Kloppenburg across the state, with Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Joe Donald tallying 12 percent, Bradley’s margin was larger here.

In the county, Bradley took 61 percent of the vote to 30 percent for Kloppenburg and 9 percent for Bradley. In the city, the tally was 58 percent for Bradley, 32 percent for Kloppenburg and 10 percent for Bradley.

Bradley and Kloppenburg will square off for the 10-year term on the state’s highest court in the April 5 spring general election.

In the Oostburg School District, voters passed a $9.59 million bond issue to finance an elementary school addition and other remodeling, renovation and demolition work by a 53 percent to 47 percent vote.

In the town of Holland, a field of five candidates for two seats on the Town Board was narrowed down to four finalists for the April vote.

Incumbent Stanley Lammers was the top vote-getter with 307 votes, followed by Douglas Hamilton, Nathan Voskuil and Reid Rathjen. Dick Gust finished last in the voting and will not be on the April 5 ballot.
