In some parts of the U.S., Tuesday is Election Day.
That doesn’t include La Crosse County this year, but board members there are getting ready for their next election in April.
All 30 county board seats will be on the spring ballot, as each board member serves a two-year term.
La Crosse County Board members have until Dec. 22 to decide whether they’ll run.
La Crosse County clerk Ginny Dankmeyer told supervisors Monday night that they don’t need as many nominating signatures as in the past — only 50 names on papers instead of 100.
Board members can start circulating the nomination papers that have to be turned in by early January.
Dankmeyer told candidates to be careful when filling out those papers.
“Be sure the top of that page is filled out fully and correctly,” Dankmeyer said. “Once you start collecting signatures, nothing on the top of that page can be altered.”
She added that signatures won’t count if the paper is changed.
