Running for Public Office

The Town of Mazomanie uses a caucus for town elections.

The caucus is a method that may be used by towns and villages for nominating candidates to be placed on the Spring Election ballot. The caucus is open to the public, but only qualified electors of the municipality may nominate and vote for candidates. A person is not required to be a registered voter in order to participate in the caucus.

Any person who is a United States citizen, 18 years of age or older, who has resided within the municipality for at least 10 days before the caucus is a qualified elector. The voter list from a previous election may be used as an aid in determining if a person qualified as an elector in the municipality at the last election. Any person whose name does not appear on the voter list may be asked to provide some form of identification that lists the person’s name, current address, and if necessary, date of birth.

There is no spring primary for town or village offices when the caucus system is used. However, there may still be a February primary conducted within the town or village for state, county or school district candidates.

The 2018 Town of Mazomanie Caucus will convene on Monday, January 22, 2018 at 6:30 PM at the Town Hall, 711 W. Hudson St., Mazomanie. The purpose of this caucus is to nominate persons for two town supervisor positions for terms running from April 2018 – April 2020. The election for said offices will be held on April 3, 2018. All registered voters in the Town of Mazomanie are encouraged to attend and participate in the caucus process.
