Voters in Wisconsin are heading to the polls to decide local races in the spring election.

There's no statewide race on Tuesday's ballot, but voters will have their say about their local government and schools. Nearly 6,000 candidates are on the ballots in Wisconsin. They're running for nearly 3,800 offices. Voters across the state will collectively decide 101 local referendum questions.

The state Government Accountability Board is predicting voter turnout of 12 percent. By comparison, the election in April of last year drew 20 percent of eligible voters who decided statewide races for Supreme Court and state superintendent.
