Sturtevant voters headed to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots for several other races, both local and statewide.
Village residents picked one of two challengers to take a seat on the Racine Unified School Board and two incumbents. Don Nielsen and Kim Plache will keep their seats with 314 and 365 votes, respectively, and Lisa Parham will join them. She earned 289 votes to edge out Wally Rendon.
Incumbent Municipal Judge Robert Niemiec will stay on the Sturtevant bench. He was challenged for the first time in 15 years by three additional candidates. He came through the February primary with former police officer Stuart Ten Cate, and came out on top, 373 to 269.
For county executive, Jonathan Delagrave handily won over David Lecus, 444 to 142.
Circuit Court judge races had David Paulson edging out Tricia Hanson, 334 to 314 and Pat Torhorst over Joseph Seifert, 334 to 232.
Village voters also chose State Supreme Court Justice Ann Bradley over James Daley, 343 to 321, and they supported a constitutional amendment – 411 to 282 – to allow state supreme court justices to choose the chief justice instead of having the role given to the judge with the most tenure.
