Polls are open until 8 p.m. today for primary election voting in for local offices.

The primaries are held where the field for office needs to be narrowed to two candidates for the April 1 general election.

A featured race tonight is for mayor of Waukesha, where incumbent Jeff Scrima is fending off three challengers —attorney Shawn Reilly, Common Council President Terry Thieme and Michael Volpano, a part-time instructor of marketing at Waukesha County Technical College.

In other mayoral races:

South Milwaukee: Mayor Tom Zepecki is asking voters to hire him for a fifth two-year term. His two challengers are Ald. Erik Brooks, a co-founder of the South Milwaukee farmers market, and James Leavens, a retired Wauwatosa firefighter.

Franklin: Ald. Steve F. Taylor, Ald. Steve Olson and former Ald. Basil Ryan are competing to become the next mayor. Incumbent Mayor Tom Taylor has served three terms and did not seek re-election in spring.

Delafield:A four-person race features Ald. Michele DeYoe, Alderman Jeff Krickhahn, former Alderman Al Zietlow and Lake Welfare Committee Chairman Kent Attwell.
