LWVNOW director calls for local non-partisan candidates

To the Editor:

Ever thought of serving on a school board or in local government - town or city or at the county level? The spring election for these levels of public office will take place April 3, 2018 with a spring primary, if needed, on Feb. 20, 2018.

In order to have one's name placed on the ballot for the spring election 2018 the following forms need to be completed: Registration form, declaration of candidacy, and nomination papers.

All three forms can be obtained from the municipal or county clerk or downloaded from the Wisconsin Election Commission at The registration and declaration of candidacy forms must be completed and returned to the clerk before nomination papers for signatures can be circulated.

The nomination papers can be circulated starting Dec. 1, 2017 and need signatures from qualified electors with their voting residence in the appropriate town, city, or county. Nomination papers with legible signatures must be returned to the clerk no later than 5 pm on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018 for the candidate's name to be placed on the ballot.

Please consider running for a local non-partisan office. The process is not complicated and can be done with the school district, municipal or county clerk.
