Special Election for Senate District 4

If you live in Glendale, Shorewood, or the parts of Milwaukee in the 10th, 11th, or 12th Assembly District, you will have a special election primary on July 2nd and a special general election on July 30 to fill the Senate District 4 seat that became vacant when former Senator Lena Taylor was appointed to a Milwaukee County judgeship.

Representatives Dora Drake (Assembly District 11) and LaKeshia Myers (Assembly District 12) are running in the special election primary on July 2. The winner of that primary will appear on the general election ballot on July 30.

* * * You may still be able to request an absentee ballot online for the special primary and the special general elections at MyVote.WI.gov. Early in-person voting begins June 18 and continues on weekdays through June 28. * * *

On August 13, the same two candidates will run in the Democratic primary to win a spot on the November 5 ballot. The winner on November 5 will become the state senator for District 4 from January 2025 through December 2028.

The links below provide information as of June 8, 2024, on the two candidates. Grassroots North Shore does not endorse in Democratic primaries in the absence of a previous endorsement of a candidate. We normally send questionnaires to candidates, but there is insufficient time to do so in this situation. The information provided here is strictly informational.
