MADISON — Voters will narrow the field of seven candidates seeking to become Wisconsin's top education official, with a Tuesday primary that pits a conservative-backed candidate who says she's a Democrat against six others with more Democratic support.

The top two vote-getters in the officially nonpartisan race to be secretary of the Department of Public Instruction will advance to the April 6 general election. Polls were open statewide Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
