MADISON - With the complete lack of transparency or coherent plan coming from the Trump administration, it is never too early to begin thinking about registering for your absentee ballot for the November 2020 election.

The good news is: voters in Wisconsin don’t have to wait to request your ballot. You can do it TODAY by following the link below.


sarah-godlewskiI’ve seen firsthand just how important it is to request your absentee ballot well in advance. In fact, in this past spring election, I had to wait weeks before receiving my ballot. In an election as important as this we can’t afford to wait, let’s get to work on registering voters immediately.

Our campaign team is working tirelessly to make sure we have the resources necessary to get as many voters registered as possible.

Thank so much for your help on this,
Treasurer Sarah Godlewski

Wisconsin Considers Sending Absentee Ballot Request Forms to 2.7 Million Voters PDF Print E-mail

MADISON, WI) -- As the Wisconsin Elections Commission is set to consider mailing 2.7 million Wisconsin voters absentee ballot request forms, Donald Trump is taking to Twitter to once again stir up conspiracy theories about mail-in ballots. Despite voting by mail himself, Trump proclaimed that Michigan is committing an “illegal” act by sending ballot applications to their residents, when in fact they are doing what Wisconsin is considering, and what Republicans already do in Iowa, Georgia, Nebraska and West Virginia - sending absentee ballot applications to eligible voters. His own RNC Chair says she has no problem with sending absentee ballot applications. What’s more is Trump is threatening to withhold funding from states in the midst of a pandemic. It’s not the first time he’s accused of using the powers of his office for personal political gain. 

Wisconsin saw the outcome of voters being forced to choose between their health and their vote as a new scientific report found there was an increase in Coronavirus cases directly tied to the April 7th election. Trump, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, and their conservative allies did everything in their power to force Wisconsinites to vote in person, with Trump going so far as to encourage people to go to the polls on election day. 

“Trump is throwing another temper tantrum because he knows his record is toxic to voters and he knows the momentum is with Democrats to defeat him in November,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Philip Shulman said. “Trump is already responsible for the more than 92,000 victims of the Coronavirus, many of whom would still be alive had he taken this pandemic seriously when experts warned him about it in January. Now he is threatening even more devastation by threatening to withhold funds from states who pursue absentee ballot-driven elections.”  

Trump has continually lied about voter fraud through the mail-in-ballot process, despite there being no evidence to support this. He even wasted taxpayer dollars to fund a commission tasked with investigating voter fraud, which ultimately disbanded because they could not find anything.

“Trump can’t tweet all he wants, but that won’t change the fact people are fired up to elect Joe Biden and other Democrats up and down the ticket -- and they will find a way to vote no matter what. Wisconsinites want to hold Trump accountable for his COVID-19 response, for his broken promises to lower health care and prescription drug costs, and his erratic trade wars that decimated farming communities and local economies. They understand that they can’t afford four more years of Trump.”
