The media might call 2023 an “off cycle” year, but don’t be fooled! There are a LOT of elections happening throughout the year and particularly on November 7th!
Here’s a roundup of the year’s biggest elections. Be sure to put any elections happening in your state on your calendar and share with your networks. At the bottom of this post, I’ve got a link that is continuously updated as new special elections get announced. Turnout is the key to winning!

Wisconsin Spring Election
Primary – February 21; General election – April 4
The Wisconsin Supreme Court currently has a 4-3 conservative split, but one of the conservative judges is retiring. We have a chance to flip the ideological bent of the court! The election is non-partisan with 4 candidates, and we know that the two left-leaning judges are Everett Mitchell and Janet Protasiewicz.

Even if you don’t see your state listed above, you could very well have an election to vote in this year. The way you can find out is by going to your state’s elections website, which you can find HERE. And of course, if you’re registered to vote, you’ll be notified by your state elections board about any upcoming elections. Double check that you are registered to vote at your current address HERE.
Thank you for being a voter. Remember, if it’s Tuesday, there’s probably an election happening somewhere in America!
Great information, thank you!
Yep! We’ve got some of those school board elections coming up here in May in my county. Those off-year elections usually get low turnout, but I’m hoping that after some of the recent right-wing antics related to schools, people will get how important those are!
