Village Of New Glarus Nomination Procedure For Running For Village Offices
December 3, 2020
Candidates for local office in the Village of New Glarus can begin circulating Nomination Papers on December 1, 2020. The Spring Election will have the Village President and three Trustee positions up for election. Incumbents whose terms end in 2021 are: Trustees: Michael Bell, Michael Ganshert and Peggy Kruse, as well as Village President, Roger Truttmann.
Residents of the Village that are interested in running for office should contact Lynne Erb at the Village Clerk’s Office by phone at (608)527-5973 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a “Candidate Packet” and information on the procedure.
The candidate can then begin collecting signatures of qualified electors beginning December 1, 2020. Candidates need to obtain not less than 20 signatures of qualified electors and no more than 100. Please keep in mind that the Circulator of the Nomination Papers must personally present the Nomination Paper to each signer. Since Village Trustees are elected “at-large”, a citizen of the Village could sign Nomination Papers for no more than three different candidates for Trustee.
In order to be placed on the ballot, the Nomination Papers, Campaign Registration Statement and Declaration of Candidacy must then be filed with the Village Clerk by 5:00 p.m. on January 5, 2021. Once received, the Nomination Papers will be reviewed for sufficiency.
