Brookfield voters will see state, district races on primary ballot

Aug. 5, 2014

Residents in the City of Brookfield, Town of Brookfield, and Village of Elm Grove will get a slight warm-up next week for the November general election.

Tuesday's partisan primary features seven contested races across three parties that will be featured on ballots for residents of the communities.

Voters can align their allegiance with only one party in a partisan primary election. As such, a citizen could not vote for both Mary Burke in the Democratic primary race and Scott Walker in the Republican race.

"It's a partisan election, so crossover voting is not allowed. You need to decide what party you're going to vote in and just vote for that party," Brookfield City Clerk Kelly Michaels said.

If a ballot is mistakenly filled out, voting equipment is programmed to recognize the error and notify both the voter and personnel overseeing the voting process.

"If there's a mistake, it will have an alarm and spit the ballot back out," Michaels said. "Unfortunately, with absentee ballot voters, we can't do that. But if you happen to go to the polls, you can correct a mistake."

Voting with a single party in a partisan primary election does not lock a voter in to voting for that party or any specific candidate in future elections.

The following races will be on the ballot for City of Brookfield, Town of Brookfield, and Village of Elm Grove residents.
