wdc-logoMADISON - This coming Tuesday, April 2, is Election Day in Wisconsin, and I’m not too proud to beg: I beg you to go out and vote.

lisa-neubauerThere is a highly competitive race for Wisconsin Supreme Court between Judges Lisa Neubauer and Brian Hagedorn, and the money contest has tightened considerably, as we noted here:

brian-hagedornOutside Spending Groups Make Homestretch Push for Hagedorn

In Madison, there is a big mayoral race between Paul Soglin and Satya Rhodes-Conway.

And in La Crosse County, Vernon County, and the town of Newbold (near Rhinelander), citizens get to vote on an advisory referendum for banning gerrymandering in Wisconsin. We urge a yes vote on that one!

Here’s another reason to go vote: In spring elections, your vote has much more weight than at other times because turnout tends to be much lower. So enjoy your increased power, and throw your weight around on Tuesday.

matt-rothschildThanks for being such an active and responsible citizen.

Best,

Matt Rothschild
Executive Director

Audio File of Radio Address

lakeshia-myersHello, this is Representative LaKeshia Myers with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

I'm here to remind you that the Spring General Election is on Tuesday, April 2nd.

There's something powerful about voting.

When we vote, we decide the future direction of our state.

I am asking that you not take that powerful tool for granted.

In order to make your voice heard, it is important to be aware of how, when, and what you’ll need to vote.

First, make sure you're registered.

You can check myvote.wi.gov to see if you’re currently registered, if not, you can register at your local clerk’s office during business hours or at your polling place on Election Day.

Second, you need to make sure you have the proper ID needed to vote.

Go to bringitwisconsin.com to find out the acceptable forms of identification.

If you need a free ID to vote - take proof of identity, proof of residency, proof of citizenship, and social security card to your local DMV.

And finally, polls are open from 7:00am to 8:00pm. So make a plan for “how” and “when” you will get to vote.

Your vote is your voice. Make sure you are heard on Tuesday, April 2nd. Don’t forget to vote.
