Townships that will not feature spring elections (but still have annual meetings that night) include Hollywood, Camden, Winsted and Bergen townships, all of which switched to even-year, fall elections.

Hollywood will begin its annual meeting at 8:15 p.m., with the remaining three (Bergen, Winsted and Camden) starting their meetings at 8 p.m.

Polling times for townships that are conducting elections are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the respective polling location.

Winsted Township will discuss the budget or levy for 2009 at its annual meeting at the Winsted Fire Hall, said Clerk Sue Goebel.

In Middleville, the regular March meeting was moved to 8 p.m., Monday, March 10. Elections will be conducted Tuesday with its annual meeting after the polls close at 8 p.m..

In Marysville, a single supervisor spot is open because the clerk is appointed there. The supervisor position is served by Dale Ronning, who refiled.

Watertown Township features the clerk position served by Ann Bruner and one supervisor position served by Si Tesch. Both have refiled. Polls there will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In Victor Township, two seats are open, the clerk position served by Sharon Glessing and the supervisor position served by Greg Bakeberg. Glessing and Bakeberg both refiled.
