Gear Up to Vote!
The Gear Up To Vote tour wraps up!



The League wrapped up our Gear Up to Vote minivan tour on October 25. In three months we drove 6,500 miles, participated in 33 events around the state, met with more than 5,000 people and engaged more than 200 LWV volunteers in our efforts. We registered more than 500 voters on the tour, but that is just a small fraction of the voters registered by our 18 local Leagues this year.

Statement on State Budget
The League calls on state lawmakers to support a state budget that provides the people of our state a high quality of life and ensures that our communities thrive. This means top-notch education for all of our children and young adults, public transit to get us to family-sustaining jobs, clean air and water, access to affordable healthcare for all Wisconsin residents, and an open, fair and responsive government. Our full statement to lawmakers.  A handy summary.
Election Observation Report

The League’s Election Observation report from the November 2016 Election is now available for review with key findings and recommendations regarding election administration, voter education and the impact of new voting laws. The report contains specific examples of problems voters experienced and concludes with recommendations for improvement. Unfortunately what this report cannot quantify is the number of eligible citizens who did not attempt to vote due to the new documentation requirements. Read a summary or the full report

The League is very grateful to our election observer volunteers for their time and efforts on making this report possible. Thank you!
