Full fields mean local primaries
Enough candidates are hoping to fill open seats in local government that they’ve triggered primary contests and brought challengers to many races, though some will still run unopposed.
Candidate filing closed at 5 p.m. Tuesday for positions that could have a primary, which is set for Aug. 12.
Candidates for other races, such as the Red Wing School Board, can file between July 29 and Aug. 12. There are three at-large Red Wing School Board positions up for election this fall.
