021716-fp-bottom-fold--Turnout under 10 percent Kenosha county wide

Countywide, voter turnout was low, as expected.

County Clerk Mary Schuch-Krebs said 10,532 people cast votes Tuesday, about 12 percent of registered voters and about 8 percent of eligible voters. She said there are 125,837 eligible voters in Kenosha County. Prior to Tuesday’s election 87,481 people are registered to vote.

Justice Rebecca Bradley advanced in the Wisconsin Supreme Court primary.

She will face Appeals Court Judge JoAnne Kloppenburg who beat out Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Joe Donald in a spring election for a spot on the state’s high court.

The two are vying for a 10-year term, on the April 5 election.

In Kenosha’s 7th District, incumbent Ald. Patrick Juliana and Robb Preston were the top vote getters in a three-way primary and will face off in April to represent the central-city district.

In the 2nd Aldermanic District, John Fox and Daniel Gaschke topped three other candidates in the primary and will face off in April’s general election to replace Ald. Rhonda Jenkins, who is stepping down.

The seat represents downtown Kenosha, the central lakefront area and reaches west to the Frank Elementary School neighborhood.
