Ozaukee County voters did not follow the statewide trend Tuesday, but instead backed Michael Screnock for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Screnock garnered 13,643 votes, or 56.7%, to Rebecca Dallet’s 9,597 votes, or 41%.

Eleven write-in votes were cast in the race. Turnout countywide was 42%, with 23,584 of the 56,056 registered voters casting ballots.

The results are almost the polar opposite of the statewide tally in which Dallet, seen as the more liberal of the candidates, received 55.8% of the vote to Screnock’s 44.2%, according to the Associated Press.

Dallet, who will be seated on the Supreme Court in August, will serve a 10-year term.

She replaces Justice Michael Gableman, who did not seek re-election.
