Candidate Ballot Access Procedures: Nomination Papers - Open for Public Comment

Date

Introduction

Throughout Wisconsin, nomination papers and associated ballot access documents are the primary way for candidates to get their name on the ballot when seeking elected office.  Following correct procedure when obtaining and submitting nomination paper signatures is crucial to ensure ballot placement for a candidate.  Based on current election law, WEC staff has worked to aide candidates with guidance documents and direct candidate contact via phone and email.  Understandably, questions remain.  This manual is meant to serve as a resource for both clerks and candidates who may have questions related to the ballot access process.
