Wisconsin's August primary is less than a week away. The election decides which names will appear on the ballot in November.

Wisconsin elections officials predict a 16 percent turnout of voting-age adults for the partisan primary Aug. 9, equating to 711,867 voters, according to a news release.

According to the Government Accountability Board, offices on the ballot include U.S. senator, U.S. representative, even-numbered state senate seats, all Wisconsin Assembly seats and all district attorneys. Independent candidate names do not appear on the partisan primary ballot, but will be on the ballot in November.
