Tuesday, July 12, there’s a Primary election for Senate District 2. Remember to vote, if you live in the northern or eastern part of Little Chute, or in any part of Senate district 2 outside of Little Chute. This district covers parts of Outagamie, Shawano, Oconto and Brown counties.
The incumbent in this election is State Senator Rob Cowles, a Republican (VoteRobCowles.com/about-rob-2.html). He has no opposition on the Republican ticket, so there is only a Democratic party primary on Tuesday. There are two candidates on the Democratic Primary ticket: Nancy Nusbaum (NancyForSenate.com/about) and Otto Junkermann (www.wisconsinvote.org/candidateProfile.cfm?id=715, and www.ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/Otto_Junkermann).
Because Senate district 2 cuts through Little Chute, only residents in the northern and eastern wards will go to the polls Tuesday. Residents in wards 2, 8, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18 and 19 will vote at the Village Hall Tuesday, while those in wards 1, 4, 9, 10 and 15 will vote at the Civic Center. Residents in wards 3, 5, 6, 7, 11 and 14 will not vote in this election, because they’re in Senate district 1, not district 2.

The General Election for Senate district 2 will take place on Tuesday, August 9 between Republican Senator Rob Cowles and the winner of Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
As confusing as all this may be for our Village, it’s even more complicated when you look at the Fox Valley as a whole. There are two more Democratic party primaries in the Fox Valley on Tuesday, for Senate districts 14 and 18. The other Senate District in the Fox Valley that is undergoing a recall election is Senate district 30. There is no primary for Senate district 30, because this district has only one Democrat (the incumbent) and one Republican (the challenger).
The General election will take place on Tuesday, July 19 for Senate district 30. The General election will take place on August 9 for Senate districts 14 and 18, just as it will for Little Chute’s Senate District 2 race.
