[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Argyle 12-7-2005 as Title 2, Ch. 1, Secs. 2-1-2, 2-1-3 and 2-1-4, of the 2005 Village Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]

§ 26-1 Caucus for nomination of candidates.

Every candidate for an elective Village office shall be nominated by use of a caucus as prescribed by § 8.05(1), Wis. Stats.

§ 26-2 Election hours; voter registration.

Election poll hours. The voting polls in the Village of Argyle, Lafayette County, Wisconsin, shall be opened from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for all elections.[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. III).
Voter registration. All electors for all elections shall be required to be registered. The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall receive applications for registration at his/her office during regular office hours throughout the year, except that registration may also be completed at Village polling places on election days upon presentation of proper identification and proof of residency.

§ 26-3 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 election inspectors. However, pursuant to § 7.32, Wis. Stats., the Village Clerk-Treasurer is authorized to reduce the number of election officials, provided that no such action may reduce the number of officials at a polling place to less than three. The Clerk-Treasurer 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 Clerk-Treasurer shall further redistribute duties among the remaining officials. Pursuant to § 7.32, Wis. Stats., the Village Clerk-Treasurer is hereby authorized to reduce the number of election officials for all elections to three 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. The Clerk-Treasurer is hereby authorized to schedule election officials in shifts on any said election day. The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall redistribute the duties of such election officials.
