We’re trying something a bit different for the spring elections. We’ll be doing pure literature drops – leaving information at the door, but not knocking. If you’re new to volunteering this is a great way to get involved!
I didn’t expect to have something for Team Gold Volunteers to do, but Republicans aren’t resting on their laurels. According to this Madison.com article, Scott Walker and state Republicans are planning a power grab:
They plan on limiting Josh Kaul’s power to represent the state in litigation, and giving the legislature power to elect an unelected ‘special counsel’ to represent the state instead
They are planning to limit early voting, despite a federal judge’s ruling stating that the last time they tried this it was racially discriminatory.
So we’re asking you to volunteer from the comfort of your own home this month, by calling and texting people, letting them know to contact their representatives about this.
We did it! We’ve reelected Tammy Baldwin to the US Senate, and swept all statewide offices for Democrats. Thanks to your help and support, Governor Tony Evers, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul, and State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski won their races.
If you volunteered with us this past election cycle, we hope you stay in touch! The next elections are in Spring of 2019, where a seat on the Wisconsin State Supreme Court is up for grabs.
edit on 10.30.2018: Please note that the location of the 11/1/2018 phone bank has changed! The sign up link has the new address, and if you’ve signed up you should have received an update email.
edit on 10.9.2018: We’ve updated this post to now include our November events!
We’re down to 41 days before the 2018 general elections, and we’re kicking it into high gear. We have a ton of volunteer opportunities from now until election day, so come check out our events below.
You’ll find that we’re using a different system for event sign ups, we hope you find it easier to use than what we were using before. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
Also please note that the location details are revealed after you sign up (consider this a security upgrade).
