UPCOMING MEETINGS AND EVENTS
Go to MyVoteWI.wi.gov to find out your polling place, whether you are registered, how to get registered, what you need to register, what you need to vote, how to vote absentee, and what will be on your ballot on August 14.
It is particularly important that you check to see if you are registered, as the state has been purging the voter rolls again. Just because you voted in the past does not ensure that you are still registered. If it turns out that you are no longer registered, do not panic — you can register at the polls on the day of the primary. You will need to bring proof of residence and a picture ID; if you have a current WI drIver’s license, that will suffice. Check out MyVoteWI.wi.gov for other forms of proof of residence and ID.
There is talk that we Dems should vote in the Republican primary so that we can vote for sheriff. Remember, however, that we need ALL our votes to count for our Democratic candidates, plus Patrick McLafferty is running as a Democratic write-in candidate. The amount of help the state party will offer our county party, our 28th Assembly District candidate Kim Butler, and our 7th Congressional District candidate, either Margaret Engebretson or Brian Ewert, will depend on the turnout in the Democratic primary on August 14.
This is a personal choice, and of course you are free to choose which primary in which to vote. But voting in the Republican primary will hurt us Dems during the rest of the election season and possibly even longer.Choose wisely!
