County Supervisor Dan McGuire, Lone Rock, has removed himself from consideration for village president in the April 6 elections, leaving his position open for write-in candidates.
McGuire appeared in-person at the Feb. 9 Lone Rock Village board meeting to give a letter removing himself from the race. According to Village Clerk Tammy Christianson, McGuire stated he did not have time to devote to the position.
Dan Quinn, current village president who is running for re-election, will still appear on the ballot.
In Wisconsin, a candidate must register as write-in candidate for their election votes to be counted. Christianson said she has not received any write-in candidacy forms.
Many of the elections in the area are unopposed.
To register as a write-in candidate, a campaign registration must be filed with the clerk’s office by noon the Friday prior to the election, April 2.
The registration form can be found at https://ethics.wi.gov/Resources/CF-1_Registration_Statement.pdf
