There's a state Supreme Court election in a few weeks, and many people don't even know it's happening.

Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's Mike McCabe says its partly due to a lack of advertising.

"This has been so under the radar that my fear is that people don't know much about this race, don't know hardly anything about the challenger."

McCabe says he's happy the contest focuses on the issues, but that doesn't help if no one shows up to vote.

"It's not a good thing to have a statewide election and have nobody notice."

The upcoming contest pairs Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson against Jefferson County Judge Randy Koshnick.

Abrahamson does have ads running. Koshnick plans one closer to election time.
