Voters in Superior head to the polls today to narrow the field of candidates running for mayor; countywide voters narrow the field of candidates vying for superintendent of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

Four candidates - Brent Fennessey, Kalee Hermanson, Mike Herrick and Jim Paine - are vying for a chance to lead the city when Mayor Bruce Hagen retires in April. The top two vote-getters move on to the April 4 election.

Tony Evers of Madison, Lowel Holtz of Beloit and John Humphries of Mount Horeb are in the running to lead the Department of Public Instruction for the state, with two moving on to the April 4 election.

Voters will need a valid form of identification to cast their ballot today. Visit bringit.wisconsin.gov to make sure you have the right ID.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and remain open until 8 p.m., and new voters can register at the polls with proof of residency.
