robin-vos-is-safe-to-voteMADISON - It looks like Robin Vos is getting a run for his money, as outside groups supporting his Democratic challenger are all of a sudden spending big against the Speaker, as we noted here:

Outside Groups Escalate Spending Against GOP Speaker Vos

That’s one of the more interesting developments in Wisconsin politics this week.      

Another development, which was a blow for voting rights, was the U.S. Supreme Court decision not to allow an extension for Wisconsin to count ballots, though it oddly has allowed other states an extension. Here’s what we wrote about that:

U.S. Supreme Court Slams Door on Wisconsin Voters

This decision by the Supreme Court makes it all the more vital that you exercise your right to vote right away.

If you haven’t voted yet, I’m urging you to do so by the end of the day tomorrow.

Most clerks’ offices are open for early voting till 5:00 p.m. on Friday, and some, especially in bigger cities, are open on Saturday and Sunday, too.

If you don’t know where your local clerk’s office is, you can easily find it at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-US/MyMunicipalClerk.

If you have an absentee ballot, and you haven’t mailed it in yet, DON’T PUT IT IN THE MAIL. Instead, drive it to your local clerk’s office and hand it in, in person, or put it in an official drop box if there is one.

And while you’re at it, please urge all your family members to vote. I know I texted my sons this week to make sure they voted!

Democracy works best when everybody votes.

Happy voting!

Best,

Matt Rothschild
