Voters in South Now's circulation will decide on the nation's next president, a state assembly representative, a middle school building and more when they head to the polls Nov. 8.
What's on the ballot
The presidential race between Republican Donald Trump with running mate Mike Pence and Democrat Hillary Clinton running with Tim Kaine has a few more faces.
Darell Castle (running mate Scott Bradley) is on the ballot for the Constitution Party, Gary Johnson (Bill Weld) for the Libertarian Party, Jill Stein (Ajamu Baraka) for the Green Party, the Workers World Party is represented by candidate Monica Moorehead (Lamont Lilly) and the American Delta Party features Rocky Roque De La Fuente (Michael Steinberg) representing them.
Additionally, Milwaukee County residents will have a choice between incumbent Ron Johnson (R), who is going up against Russ Feingold (D) and Libertarian Phillip N. Anderson for the United States Senate.
Incumbent Paul Ryan (R) is facing off against Ryan Rolen (D), Jason Lebeck (L) and Spencer Zimmerman who calls himself a Trump Conservative for the first district representative in congress.
Residents of state Assembly District 21, which includes Oak Creek, South Milwaukee and a small part of Franklin, will choose between incumbent Jessie Rodriguez (R-Oak Creek) and John (Jack) Redmond (D-Oak Creek) for the district's seat. Rodriguez was elected in a special election in 2013, and then re-elected in 2014. Redmond, a first-time candidate, won the democratic primary this August, beating out Franklin Disco Gratke.
Additionally, a number of uncontested races are on the ballots including David Cullen (D) for county treasurer, John La Fave (D) for register of deeds, John T. Chisholm (D) for district attorney, and George Christenson (D) for county clerk.
In Greendale, Dave Craig (R) is unopposed for the district 28 state senator spot and Ken Skowronski (R) is unopposed for the district 82 representative to the assembly seat.
Those who live in Franklin will also give feedback to the Franklin Public School district on whether or not Forest Park Middle School should get a new building in a referendum question. If approved, the current middle school would be torn down and a new building would be built on adjacent district property. The new building would cost up to $43.3 million, representing a tax increase of 65 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value.
