How to access in

I want to be able to access the id of the signed in user in my forms to make a certain query for the Select2 field.

Unfortunately I don’t know how to get the in the

This is what I’m trying currently in my

class InsertVisitRepresentativeForm(ModelForm):
    class Meta:
        model = VisitsRepresentatives
        fields = '__all__'

        widgets = { 
            'customer' : s2forms.ModelSelect2Widget(
                attrs={'data-placeholder':_("Customer"), 'data-minimum-input-length': 1},
                search_fields = ['contactPerson__icontains']

    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(InsertVisitRepresentativeForm, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)


        postalRepresentativeObject = PostalRepresentative.objects.get(representative = self.user)

        postalCodes = postalRepresentativeObject.postalCodes

        self.fields["customer"].queryset = Customers.objects.filter(Q(postalcode__in = postalCodes) | Q(postalcode__gte =  postalRepresentativeObject.beginPostalRange) & Q(postalcode__lte = postalRepresentativeObject.endPostalRange))

This does not work, so I’m wondering how to get the user id in a ModelForm?
