Wisconsinites will have their first chance to weigh in on new leadership for the state education agency on Tuesday.
The primary election for the nonpartisan state superintendent position, which heads the Department of Public Instruction and acted as a springboard for Gov. Tony Evers' candidacy, will take place Feb. 16. There are seven candidates on the ballot. The primary will whittle that down to the two who receive the most votes, who will then go before voters again in April.
