[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Brandon 12-14-1998 as §§ 2-1-2 and 2-1-3 of the 1998 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to the Wisconsin Statutes, the voting polls in the Village of Brandon, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, shall be opened from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for all elections.
Canvas Board. The Canvas Board shall consist of seven citizens appointed by the Village President from lists submitted by the two major political parties subject to confirmation by the Village Board for two-year terms commencing May 1 in the year of appointment.
Reduction of number of election officials. Pursuant to the Wisconsin Statutes, there is hereby established one set of election officials to conduct all elections of the Village which shall consist of seven Canvas Board members. However, the Village Clerk shall have the power to prescribe the number of election officials. The Clerk shall determine in advance of each election whether the number of election officials for such election should be reduced from the number prescribed by the Wisconsin Statutes, and if such a reduction is so determined, the Village Clerk shall further redistribute duties among the remaining officials.
Alternate sets of election officials. Because § 7.30(1), Wis. Stats., allows for the creation of alternate or two sets of election officials to work at different times on election day, the Village Board authorizes the selection of alternate and/or two sets of election officials to staff the polls on election day.
