The campaign season has begun.
The first week of December traditionally marks the start of campaigns for local races in the Wisconsin spring elections.
In La Crosse County, candidates have declared already for 18 of the 29 county board seats on the April 7 ballot.
Most of those candidates are incumbents seeking re-election.
So far, just one La Crosse County supervisor, Ray Ebert, has announced that he will not run for another two-year term.
No circuit court races are scheduled in La Crosse County until 2021, when Judge Gloria Doyle’s seat will be up for election.
Besides the presidential primaries, the only statewide race expected in April will be a Wisconsin Supreme Court contest, in which Justice Dan Kelly is seeking a 10-year term.
