  • Summary
  • With papers filed, Wisconsin candidates have kicked off the 2016 campaign. Despite reported high voter interest nationally, only 224 hopefuls filed for 115 state legislative seats —the lowest number since at least 2000. In 41 districts, candidates are unopposed. In about half, there is no November contest between major party candidates, virtually guaranteeing election.
