Candidates/Date Set for Wisconsin Supreme Court Election

The 2012 election season may be over, but wait – there’s more! Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack is up for reelection for a 10-year term on the court, and she is being challenged by Wisconsin’s “King of Lemon Laws,” Vince Megna, and Marquette University Law School professor Edward Fallone.

Though Wisconsinites are perhaps weary of elections, the February 19 primary and April 2 general election are not ones to miss. The primary will determine which two candidates appear on the ballot for the general election, meaning the incumbent is not guaranteed a spot on the ballot.

Key dates in the Supreme Court race:

  • Tuesday, February 19, 2013 – Primary Election Day (Top two vote-getters advance)
  • Tuesday, April 2, 2013- General Election Day
