2017 Wisconsin elections

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2017 Wisconsin elections

← 2016
2018 →

The 2017 Wisconsin Spring Election was held in the U.S. state of Wisconsin on April 4, 2017. The top of the ballot was the election for state Superintendent of Public Instruction. There was also an uncontested election for Wisconsin Supreme Court, three uncontested elections for Wisconsin Court of Appeals, and several other nonpartisan local and judicial elections. There were also a number of local referendums for school funding. The 2017 Wisconsin Spring Primary was held February 21, 2017.

In the election for Superintendent of Public Instruction, incumbent Tony Evers won a third term. He would not complete the term, however, as he was elected Governor of Wisconsin the following year.

State elections

Public Instruction

Incumbent Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Evers easily defeated challenger Lowell E. Holtz, taking nearly 70% of the vote. Evers' performance in this statewide election was later useful as he made his case in a crowded Democratic Primary field for Governor of Wisconsin in 2018.[1]
