This notice is to inform you, our residents of the Village of Ridgeway, how to contact us when needed.
The Village office has created an email which is shared by office staff to better assist you.
During normal office hours please call or email.
Outside of normal office hours feel free to call the office and leave a message or email us using the link below. We will gladly respond to you when the office re-opens.
Village Hall Office Hours:
Monday through Friday: 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM
We are looking for citizens to serve as poll workers for the April 7, 2020 election. Many of our veteran poll workers have to sit this one out, so we need more residents to step up!
If you are interested, send me a message with “Poll Worker ” in the subject line, a few words about your interest and your contact information! Poll workers earn $9 an hour.
To be a poll worker, a person must:
Be a qualified elector of the county in which the municipality is located (i.e., an adult citizen of the United States who has resided in the election district for 10 consecutive days and is not otherwise disqualified to vote)
Be able to read and write fluently in the English language
NOT be a candidate for any office to be voted on at the polling place at that election.
Poll workers do everything from check-in voters, help people register to vote, check photo IDs and process absentee ballots. We typically have a morning shift and an evening shift.
I will provide you with training prior to election day for the job you will be doing.
This is a great opportunity for high school (age 16 or older) and college students to get involved with the democratic process!
Village Staff is doing everything we can to ensure the safety of all its residents during this process and is following all necessary guidelines and implementing as many safety measures as possible. Our goal is for each eligible voter to be able to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted.
Help serve and shape your community by joining the Plan Commission!
The Plan Commission reviews and makes recommendations to the board regarding CSM’s, Zoning Change Requests, CUP’s, Land Use and Development and works towards the goals in the 2018 Comprehensive Plan adopted by the Board of Trustees.

The Village Office is implementing guidance from federal and state health and election officials, and will communicate any alterations in normal procedures that are being implemented due to COVID-19 precautions.
There is currently no change to our scheduled office hours or election procedure on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The polling location at the Village Hall/Fire Station at 113 Dougherty Court, Ridgeway, WI will remain open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm on Election Day.
Voters are encouraged to vote absentee for this election. You may vote absentee by mail. This request for absentee ballot needs to be submitted in writing to the clerk’s office along with acceptable photo identification. You may also request an absentee ballot online at: myvote.wi.gov. Information about acceptable photo identification is available at: https://bringit.wi.gov/ Please see the village website under Election Information for additional links and deadlines. https://villageofridgeway.com/election-information/
Vulnerable individuals and individuals who may be ill or exposed to the virus should vote absentee or curbside on election day. Curbside voting will include having a paper ballot brought to you outside to your vehicle by two election inspectors who will issue you a ballot and take it inside to be cast and counted on election day.
The situation concerning COVID-19 and the upcoming election is fluid, quickly evolving and guidance changes daily. The Wisconsin Election Commission is working with federal and state public health officials to determine the most effective guidance to provide to local officials considering this public health event.
We will provide additional information to area residents as it is available.
