Decisions local voters like you make on Tuesday, April 3, could have far-reaching impact on what happens at city hall, the county courthouse and in your school district. If you live in the City of Eau Claire, six of the eleven city council seats are on the ballot, and both the Altoona and Eau Claire School Districts feature contested races.
First thing, know what's on your ballot, which depends upon where you live. The easiest way to check is to go to myvote.wi.gov and click the "What's on my ballot?" icon. You can also check to see where your polling place is. All polls are open April 3, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Voter ID is required.
The Chamber doesn't endorse candidates, but we do strive to provide you with useful resources to learn where they stand on key issues so you can make up your own mind. Here are some quick links if you're still deciding:
Eau Claire City Council - Five of the six seats on the ballot are contested.
Altoona & Eau Claire School Boards - Contested at-large races in both districts.
Eau Claire County Board - See candidate answers to the Chamber's Good Government Council questionnaire.
Branch 5 Eau Claire County Circuit Judge
- Community Television interviews with candidates Shaughnessy Murphy and Sarah Harless
In Altoona, the races for Mayor and City Council are uncontested. Statewide, Wisconsin voters will also choose a State Supreme Court Justice for a 10-year term, and decide on a Constitutional Amendment whether to eliminate the office of State Treasurer.
