West Allis — Most of the electoral action at the spring election will be for the West Allis-West Milwaukee School Board where the terms of three first-term members will expire in April.
They are Daniel Bailey, Kristi Bonaparte and Gail Radonski.
The only race on the city side will likely be for the 5th District aldermanic seat of James Sengstock, who resigned after more than 41 years on the council.
The West Allis Common Council on Tuesday was expected to approve a special election to elect a candidate to fill the two years remaining on Sengstock's unexpired term.
Candidates for the School Board and Common Council must circulate nomination papers. The filing deadline for all nomination documents is 5 p.m. Jan. 7 for both school and city offices.
Incumbents have until Dec. 27 to file notices that they won't seek re-election. The spring election will be April 1. A primary, if needed, would be held Feb. 18.
