Salem residents to vote on incorporation investigation referendum Tuesday

Salem residents will be able to vote in a referendum tomorrow to gauge residents’ interest in investigating incorporation as a village.

This is a non-binding referendum that is for advisory purposes only.

Here is the ballot language, according to the town website:

Shall the Town Board of Salem begin exploration and gather information pertaining to the process of incorporation as a village?



Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Town of Salem has two (2) polling locations:

  • Salem Town Hall – Wards 1-3,5-7,11-15, 9814 Antioch Road (Highway 83)
  • Wilmot Fire Station – Wards 4,8,9,10, 30400 Wilmot Road (Highway C)

There also are partisan primaries taking place tomorrow, though none of strictly local interest.

NOTE: Be sure to check tomorrow for the referendum results.

    Does anyone know if they vote to incorporate, will it change any school boundries? My kids go to Wheatland and I would hate for that to change because of this. Thanks!

      Heather: Municipal boundaries do not effect school district boundaries. For example, the parcels West of the I along Hwy 50 that now are in Kenosha are still in the Central HS and Bristol grade school districts. — DH
