Who sits on the bench and how they get there matters!
The Fall 2022 Election is in the books! Thanks to everyone who took the time to become an informed voter! Early data shows that Wisconsin had a 60% voter turnout, compared with 47.6% nationally! Here's the resource.
Thank you to everyone who voted, who served their community by working at the polls, who served as election observers, who ran the elections (THANK YOU, CLERKS!!), who helped someone else exercise their right to vote by driving someone to the polls or witnessing a ballot, as well as to the candidates who put themselves out there, raising their hands to offer to serve as our representatives. We especially want to thank the candidates who agreed to participate in forums, and who helped voters learn about them and their plans by responding to our Vote411.org online voter guide.
Here is our official statement on why we were not able to hold candidate forums this election.
Where are the forums?
