MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A big election is now just days away, as candidates make a final push ahead of Tuesday's Spring elections.  Up for grabs, a spot on Wisconsin's Supreme Court, several races for circuit court judge, and state superintendent.

In Milwaukee, about a dozen union members volunteered with a phone bank to urge members to hit the polls Tuesday.  Similar phone banks were held all over the state of Wisconsin, by various groups.

The election is a tough one for candidates who are vying for voter's attentions on the back end of a holiday and opening day.  One volunteer says that is not their only challenge.

" I think people are a little bit tired of the conflict of the politics here in Wisconsin," says Al Lemke.

Lemke points out the importance of Tuesday's races, especially on the Supreme Court.

"It could determine the outcome of Act 10," says Lemke.

In the state supreme court, incumbent Pat Roggensack faces challenger Ed Fallone.  In Milwaukee county, Incumbent Rebecca Bradley faces Janet Protasiewicz in the circuit court race.  Candidates that Fox 6 made contact with Saturday sais they were taking Easter Sunday off from the campaign trail, before the final push to Tuesday's election.
