VOTE! | WisCommunity


Tomorrow is the day. It's often said that if you don't vote you've not bought the right to complain.  More importantly, if you don't vote you have given up all opportunity of participation in the democratic process. There are many important elections up for grabs this time around.   School board and other local elections are of enormous importance, and can affect you most of all right where you live. Likewise city government elections.

It's also a vitally important election for the State Surpreme Court.  I won't tell people who to vote for, but personally I am voting for Ed Fallone because I think he stands the best chance of making the Surpreme Court system more functional, and less swayed by big money (Let's get the big money out, but that's an argument for another day).

Also state-wide we have a choice for Superintendent of Schools - pitting someone with a long-term record of working for better schools in the state against someone who frankly seems to have a plan to destroy the public school system. Your choice. Again, I won't tell you who to vote for, but I'm voting for Evers.

But most importantly - go out and vote. It's your right, and a lot of people in the state are trying to make it harder for you to exercise your right. Take it seriously, make it count.
