[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Two Rivers (Title 2, Ch. 1, of the 1981 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
The City of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, operates under the Council-Manager system of government.
The City of Two Rivers shall be and hereby is divided into eight wards, and two or more wards shall be combined into one common polling place that will use common ballot boxes and ballots and voting machines, and combined, not separate, returns must be maintained. The two or more City wards combined have been prepared in accordance with Wisconsin statutory requirements that will accommodate the Manitowoc County Supervisory District Plan.
The combined Seven and Eight Wards comprised the 25th Supervisory District, and the polling place shall be located at J. E. Hamilton Community House, Behringer Room, 1520 17th Street, Two Rivers, Wisconsin.
At all City elections, the polls shall be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Pursuant to § 7.30(1), Wis. Stats., there shall be five election inspectors at each polling location in the City. Alternate inspectors may be selected, or two or more sets of inspectors may be selected to work at different times on election days. The City Clerk is authorized to establish different working hours for different inspectors assigned to the same polling place.
A student who is 16 or 17 years of age enrolled in grades 9 to 12 in a public or private school who has at least a 3.0 grade point average or the equivalent may serve as an inspector at the polling place serving the pupil's residence upon approval of the pupil's parent or guardian and of the principal of the school in which the pupil is enrolled. Such pupil may serve as an inspector only if at least one inspector at the polling place, other than the Chief Inspector, is a qualified elector of the state. No pupil may serve as Chief Inspector. The City Clerk shall obtain written authorization of the principal of the school where the pupil is enrolled for the entire term for which the pupil is appointed. In addition, the City Clerk shall obtain written permission from a pupil's parent or guardian prior to the pupil's appointment as an inspector. The City Clerk shall advise the principal of the school in which such pupil is enrolled of the date of expiration of the pupil's term in office.
Board of Canvassers. Pursuant to § 7.53, Wis. Stats., there is hereby established a Board of Canvassers for the City, which shall consist of three members; namely, the City Clerk and two members appointed by the City Clerk. The members of the Board of Canvassers shall serve a two-year term, commencing January 1 of each even-numbered year, except that any member who is appointed to fill a permanent vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the City Clerk. The Board of Canvassers shall meet no later than 9:00 a.m. on the Monday after an election to canvass the votes. Where there is a municipal election, the Board of Canvassers shall meet the next day at 9:00 a.m. and recess until the Monday after. The Clerk shall publish the results of each canvass.
