The partisan primary includes several races. Wisconsinites will choose a Republican to run against Tony Evers in the general election for Wisconsin governor. A Democratic candidate will be selected to faceoff against Ron Johnson in November.

Voters from West Allis shared why they came out to vote.

"It's our right to vote and I don't want anyone to take it away from me by not voting, so that's why I come to vote," said Dawn Nardi.

Kelly Starr-King came out to vote to see the change she wants to see in the state.

"Our world is literally in a world of hurt, we need change in a big way, we've never seen anything like this. So yeah, whatever we can do to make the necessary changes, people get out there," said Starr-King.

Those who still need to drop off absentee ballots can do so at City Hall Tuesday until 7 p.m and at Central Court, located at 1901 Kinnickinnic Avenue, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
