One of six Wisconsin school districts covered by Ballotpedia to hold primary

The Madison Metropolitan School District is holding a primary for Seat 6 on the school board on February 18, 2020. Three candidates filed to run for the open seat, and the two who receive the most votes will move on to the April 7 general election. That ballot will also include races for Seat 2 and Seat 7, since only one and two candidates, respectively, filed to run for those seats.

Ballotpedia is covering five other school districts—DeForest, McFarland, Middleton-Cross Plains, Sun Prairie, and Verona—in Wisconsin in 2020. None of those school districts will hold February primaries since fewer than three candidates filed to run for each seat up for election this year. Among the five districts, 11 seats will be on the April general election ballot. Eight of those seats are unopposed.

All six school districts also held elections in 2019. That year, the Madison Metropolitan School District held primaries for all three seats. No other school districts held primaries. Among the six districts, a total of 29 candidates filed for the 19 seats on the ballot that year.

These six school districts served a combined total of 55,821 students during the 2014-2015 school year.
