The names of the candidates for each office, whose nominations have been certified to or filed in this office, are given under the title of the office, each in its proper column in the sample ballot below.
INFORMATION TO VOTERS
Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote. If a voter is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence, if the voter presents proof of residence in a form specified by law. Where ballots are distributed to electors, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the voter’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the voter of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.
Where Optical Scan Voting is Used
The voter shall fill in the oval next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote, and fill in the oval next to the write-in line.
Where using an electronic ballot marking device (“ExpressVote”)
When using an electronic ballot marking device (“ExpressVote”) insert the activation card into the ExpressVote to mark the ballot. The voter shall touch the screen at the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write in vote.
The vote should not be cast in any other manner. Not more than five minutes’ time shall be allowed inside a voting booth. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the voter in casting his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked.
If the voter spoils an Optical Scan Ballot or ExpressVote Ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one elector. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the voter shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place.
After Voting the Ballot
After an official Optical Scan Ballot or ExpressVote Ballot is marked, the voter shall insert the ballot in the voting device or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit. The voter shall leave the polling place promptly.
A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the voter’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the voter.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that at an election to be held in the several towns, villages, cities, wards and election districts of the State of Wisconsin, on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, the following question will be submitted to a vote of the people pursuant to law:
2017 ENROLLED JOINT RESOLUTION 7
To amend section 1 of article VI, section 3 of article VI and sections 7 and 8 of article X; and to create section 17 of article XIV of the constitution; relating to: deleting from the constitution the office of state treasurer (second consideration).
Whereas, the 2015 legislature in regular session considered a proposed amendment to the constitution in 2015 Assembly Joint Resolution 5, which became 2015 Enrolled Joint Resolution
7, and agreed to it by a majority of the members elected to each of the two houses, which proposed amendment reads as follows:
SECTION 1. Section 1 of article VI of the constitution is amended to read:
[Article VI] Section 1. The qualified electors of this state, at the times and places
of choosing the members of the legislature, shall in 1970 and every 4 years thereafter
elect a secretary of state, treasurer and an attorney general who shall hold their offices
for 4 years 4- year terms.
SECTION 2. Section 3 of article VI of the constitution is amended to read:
[Article VI] Section 3. The powers, duties, and compensation of the treasurer and
attorney general shall be prescribed by law.
SECTION 3. Sections 7 and 8 of article X of the constitution are amended to read:
[Article X] Section 7. The lieutenant governor, secretary of state, treasurer and
attorney general, shall constitute a board of commissioners for the sale of the school and
university lands and for the investment of the funds arising therefrom. Any two of said
commissioners shall be a quorum for the transaction of all business pertaining to the
duties of their office.
Section 8. Provision shall be made by law for the sale of all school and university lands after they shall have been appraised; and when any portion of such lands shall be sold and the purchase money shall not be paid at the time of the sale, the commissioners shall take security by mortgage upon the lands sold for the sum remaining unpaid, with seven per cent 7 percent interest thereon, payable annually at the office of the treasurer as
provided by law. The commissioners shall be authorized to execute a good and sufficient conveyance to all purchasers of such lands, and to discharge any mortgages taken as security, when the sum due thereon shall have been paid. The commissioners shall have power to withhold from sale any portion of such lands when they shall deem it expedient, and shall invest all moneys arising from the sale of such lands, as well as all other university and school funds, in such manner as the legislature shall provide, and shall give such security for the faithful performance of their duties as may be required by law.
SECTION 4. Section 17 of article XIV of the constitution is created to read:
[Article XIV] Section 17. The state treasurer holding office on the date of
ratification of the 2015- 17 amendment providing for the deletion of that office from the constitution shall continue to hold that office until the first Monday of January in 2019.
Any vacancy in the office occurring before that date shall be filled in the manner provided by law.
SECTION 5. Numbering of new provisions. If another constitutional amendment
ratified by the people creates the number of any provision created in this joint resolution,
the chief of the legislative reference bureau shall determine the sequencing and the
numbering of the provisions whose numbers conflict and adjust any cross- references
Now, therefore, be it resolved by the senate, the assembly concurring, That the foregoing
proposed amendment to the constitution is agreed to by the 2017 legislature; and, be it further
Resolved, That the foregoing proposed amendment to the constitution be submitted to a vote of the people at the election to be held on the first Tuesday in April 2018; and, be it further
Resolved, That the question concerning ratification of the foregoing proposed amendment to the constitution be stated on the ballot as follows:
QUESTION 1: “Elimination of state treasurer. Shall sections 1 and 3 of article VI and
sections 7 and 8 of article X of the constitution be amended, and section 17 of article XIV of the
constitution be created, to eliminate the office of state treasurer from the constitution and to replace
the state treasurer with the lieutenant governor as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public
Article VI of the Wisconsin Constitution provides for the election of a state treasurer every four years. Wis. Const. Art. VI, § 1. The Constitution spells out only one duty for the Treasurer: to serve as one of three members on the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, which is charged with the sale of school and university lands and with the investment of funds arising from such sales. Wis. Const. Art. X, § 7. The other two members of that Board are the Attorney General and Secretary of State.
The referendum question proposes to eliminate the constitutional office of Treasurer. To fill the Treasurer’s position on the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands, the Lieutenant Governor would serve as the third member of that Board.
A “yes” vote on this question would eliminate the constitutional office of the Treasurer. It would replace the Treasurer with the Lieutenant Governor as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands.
A “no” vote would retain the constitutional office of the Treasurer under Article VI. The Treasurer would also continue to serve as a member of the Board of Commissioners of Public Lands.
