wdc-header-2020MADISON - One of the things I enjoy the most about my job is working with other – and younger! – activists around the state that are engaged in the effort to make our democracy work better right here in Wisconsin.

We’re part of the Wisconsin Voting Rights Coalition, which sent the following letter to Gov. Evers in hopes that he’ll follow through on his good ideas about expanding DMV hours and accessibility so that citizens can more easily obtain the Voter ID card they need:

Wisconsin Governor Evers Must Enforce His Executive Order to Expand Access to Photo ID

This is just a small part of a huge effort by pro-democracy nonprofit groups all across the state to make sure there’s a big turnout here on Nov. 3. I wrote about his effort in a commentary I just did for the Wisconsin Examiner:

The fight to make voting easier in Wisconsin

Another coalition we’re proud to play an active role in is the Wisconsin Fair Maps Coalition. Thanks to the hard work of grassroots activists, more and more citizens will be able to weigh on whether they want nonpartisan redistricting in Wisconsin, as I note here:

More Counties Asking Citizens on Gerrymandering
