Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- With the Primary Election in Wisconsin today, the state is gearing up to see whether or not Governor Scott Walker and Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch will still be in office.

We've provided a sample ballot from Douglas County. You can only vote for one person for the governor's position, however whichever Democratic candidate and whichever Republican candidate wins will go onto the general election on June 5th.

Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch received a by from the primary ballot so her name is already on the general election ballot in June.

Parts of Sawyer County do have one extra election on their ballot today. Residents in District 29, in the cities of Meteor, Weirgor, Exeland, Meadowbrook, and Draper will be able to vote for which Democratic candidate they want to see go onto the general election in June after former Senator Pam Galloway resigned back in March.
