2021 Spring Candidates for Wisconsin

Anyone who wants to run for elected offices in Wisconsin must
...register as a candidate and file all nomination papers before Jan 5, 2021.

These races are mainly local offices like county supervisors, city alder persons, local Judges, District attorneys and school boards.
The Spring Primary Election is Tues Feb 16, 2021 (if a primary is needed)
The Spring General Election is Tues April 6, 2021.

(A full 2021 calendar is at the bottom of this post. The PDF covers everything ; every single event, meeting, doc, etc)

Here's links for everything that candidates considering running for elected offices must provide to be on the ballot.

Ballot Access Checklist for State Superintendent of Public Instruction and Judicial Candidates

Ballot Access Checklist for County Nonpartisan Candidates

Ballot Access Checklist for School District Candidates

Ballot Access Checklist for Municipal Candidates - Caucus

Ballot Access Checklist for Municipal Candidates - Nomination Papers


I thought this might be some good information for the Wisconsin DU'rs who may want to run or know someone considering a run for office. The time is now to get your campaign going. Contact your county Democratic party and they will help you get started.
The deadline falls in what is normally a holiday period, but with the pandemic, getting nomination papers done will be harder: People have to have close contact and must physically sign a nomination paper. This is usually done 'door-to-door' or at special events ( another in-person close contact) with support groups like trade unions, advocacy groups, etc.

Running for office is where it all begins and where some good things can end.

1. I am running for my seat for a third term.

School board. Currently, many are running as people are angry at us for voting to keep schools closed during the pandemic.
