How do you get on the ballot to become a Town Board Member?

Every  January, the
town holds a Caucus for the purpose of nominating individuals for town board
positions.   The Chair, Supervisor 2 and Supervisor 4 are nominated on odd number years.  The Supervisor one and Supervisor 3 positions are nominated on even number years.


When to Hold the Caucus:
Between December 1 and January 1 preceding a spring election, the governing body of a town or village
nominating candidates by caucus must decide the date on which the caucus will be held. The caucus
must be held between January 2 and January 21. The deadline to hold a caucus is not extended if
January 21 falls on a weekend. When possible, preference should be given to having the caucus on
January 21. The caucus is not required to be conducted on a Tuesday. Wis. Stat. § 8.05 (1)(a).
