After a year and a half of fighting for our rights, Scott Walker, Rebecca Kleefisch and four State Senators are being held accountable for where they've led Wisconsin. Election Day is upon us and today we get to make history!
The polls will be open from 7AM to 8PM. You do not need an ID to vote. In addition to voting for Tom Barrett for Governor and Mahlon Mitchell for Lieutenant Governor (as well as Lori Compas for State Senate if you live in Albion, Cambridge, Christiana, Deerfield and Rockdale), please do what you can to convince and get as many people to vote today. The polls have this race incredibly close and every extra vote you can get will help us win today!
You can go to https://vpa.wi.gov/ to find out where people vote. Remember, since there has been a redistricting, the polling locations for some people have changed. Check first before sending people to the polls.
We know the Republicans are bringing in out-of-state organizations to perform their usual dirty tricks today. If you see anything out of the ordinary where you vote, call the Wisconsin Voter Protection Hotline at 800-311-VOTE.
On behalf of the Democratic Party, I'd like to thank the many of you who decided not to just observe history, but worked incredibly hard to make it. And I'd like to invite everybody to help us celebrate our victory as we watch the results come in at the Essen Haus at 514 East Wilson Street starting at 8PM. There is free wifi, so please bring a laptop to help us track the results.
I look forward to a great day and night. Let's do this!
