Continuing the Fight – December 2018 Actions

I didn’t expect to have something for Team Gold Volunteers to do, but Republicans aren’t resting on their laurels. According to this 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.

To phone bank, use this link to access the directions and get started: phone bank instructions

To text, sign up using this spreadsheet, and an organizer will get in touch with you: texting sign up
Lastly, the Dane Dems is partnering up with local teams to organize a Madison Mayoral Candidate Forum. If you’re interested sign up by emailing us at
Have a wonderful and safe holidays!

Congratulations Everyone!

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.

And if you’re looking for something to do in the very short term, Mike Espy is facing a runoff for a US Senate seat in Mississippi. Indivisible Madison is writing postcards tomorrow, if you’d like to help with that.

The website will be quieter for the next month or so, so have a great holiday season, and see you in 2019!

September Volunteering Events

With the primaries over, we’ll be heading out every other weekend in September to talk to voters about the November elections! Here’s what we’re up to next month:

Canvassing Success!

Thank you to everyone who showed up to canvass or write post cards today! We had almost twice the turnout we expected, which is awesome! We hit 377 doors and wrote over 80 postcards.

As a reminder, we are going out again tomorrow after work, check out the event details here.

If you can make one of our events, it helps us to sign up so we have an estimate of people. It takes time and effort to create the walk packets, and we want to make sure we have something for every volunteer to do. We’re putting all of our events on this Google form. Sign up to canvass/postcard, phone bank, and for our team meetings.
