ICYMI: WisDems Kickoff Early Voting in Wisconsin
“He has repeatedly said that he opposes any efforts to make millionaires like himself pay more.”
MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, Democratic leaders were in communities across the state to mark the first day of early voting in Wisconsin and encourage voters to cast their ballots early for Democrats up and down the ballot.
At events from Racine to Superior, Democrats emphasized the stakes of this year’s election when it comes to restoring access to reproductive health and defending democracy and the right to vote. Democrats shared information about how voters can cast their ballots early in their local communities.
“‘I want to make sure that people here in the Northwoods, in Rhinelander, and across the whole state of Wisconsin know that the time to cast their ballots is now,’ said Wikler. For who to vote for, Wikler said it comes down to basic questions about freedom. ‘Do you think that people should have the freedom [to] decide what to do with their own bodies?’ asked Wikler. ‘The freedom to choose their own leaders and have their votes actually count? The freedom to retire with dignity with social security that’s actually intact? If they believe in those things, they should [vote] for Mandela Barnes for the Senate and Governor Tony Evers for Governor.’”
“Evers himself stressed that early voting lets those voters get it out of the way, giving them more time to help with campaigns. ‘I think it’s important, especially for people that are doing the canvassing and phone calling — they can get the vote out of the way and they can start working on the people that they know,’ Evers said.”
“‘If you have the time to vote today, or if you have time to vote before the election on Nov. 8, make sure you get out there,’ said Sara Rodriguez, Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.”
