Racine County Clerk Wendy Christensen said the special election turnout is hard to predict, but it will likely not be much with it being so close to the holidays and a special election.
“I’m hearing that it was a low turnout, but that’s just what I’ve heard,” she said.
Both candidates are running as Democrats in the primary election. The person with the most votes will then be the only candidate on the ballot for the primary election, which will be held Jan. 16. The seat was left vacant after Cory Mason was elected the Mayor of Racine in October.
