FAQs

What is a caucus?

The method used to nominate a candidate for town or village office where the nomination  paper method has not been authorized by the electors of that town.

 

When is the caucus held?

Between December 1 and January 1 the board is required to set the date for the caucus. By Wis Stats s.  8.05 (1) (a), the caucus must be held between January 2 and January 21 with preference given to the date of January  21.

 

What notice must be given?

When the date is set the clerk is required to provide notice of the caucus.  Section 8.05 (1) (b)  Wis.  Stats. requires publishing once in a newspaper and posting in the clerks office at least 5 days prior to the caucus date. If no newspaper is published in the town the clerk may post the notice in at least 3 public places in the town or one public place and on the town’s website.  See s. 10.05 Wis.  Stats.  The notice must be posted no later than 5 days prior to the date off the caucus.

 

Who can nominate candidates at the caucus?

Any resident/elector of the town who is a US citizen of at least 18 years of age. 

 

How are nominations performed?

In one of  two ways, from the floor or by a written ballot. The method is determined by the electors present.  

All electors present must be given the opportunity to nominate a candidate.  All nominations from the floor require a second and all nominations are held open until the chair has called for additional nominations three times. Following each nomination and second the chairperson must ask if there are any other nominations. If there are none the chair will close nominations for that position and move to another of the 5 positions open for election.  After all nominations for office have been made, if there are more than 2 nominations for any position the electors present will cast a ballot for one of the announced candidates to narrow the list to 2 candidates. Incumbent officers, if running for re-election, must still be nominated, seconded and certified for election.

Electors may nominate themselves for an office, or may second their nomination but they may not nominate and second themselves. If nominations are made from the floor they must receive a second. Once the nominations are made the person presiding over the caucus is required to announce the name of the candidates.
