Spring primary voting expects to be light

Only three elections are scheduled for Tuesday’s spring primary date in Door and Kewaunee counties. No primaries are taking place in Kewaunee County while only voters in the town of Sevastopol, Gibraltar Area School District, and Southern Door School District have anybody on their ballots. Door County Clerk Jill Lau says only 3,250 ballots have been printed for a Tuesday primary that has historically posted low turnout rates.

Lau says if turnout exceeds expectations, the county will be able to print additional ballots at the expense of the town and school districts. You can see a list of the candidates running in the three local races online with this story.

There are two open seats on the Gibraltar School Board and five candidates running. The candidates are Mike Peot (incumbent), Ray Einhorn, Don Helm, Brett Reetz, and Carole Vande Walle. Incumbent Britt Maltby chose not to run. The primary will be held on February 19th.


Southern Door School Board

There are five candidates running for two open school board spots. The candidates are Milly Gonzales, Penny C. Price, George Sincock, Matthew Tassoul, and Adam Urban. The primary will be held on February 19th.
