All Hands on Deck edition

Now is the time to come to the aid of the state of Wisconsin! Specifically the lowest turnout election of our various election cycles: the spring 2019 nonpartisan election featuring only one statewide race. Election Day is Tuesday, April 2. Grassroots North Shore is providing a host of opportunities to help boost turnout in the North Shore. Please sign up for at least one!

From most-needed to also helpful, here they are:

We have oodles of Neubauer yard signs we are giving away. So come engage in an election activity and get a free sign or two! Or just stop in when the office is staffed to get yours. All signs must go before Tuesday, April 2: Election Day! Here's when you can pick up signs from our office (5600 W Brown Deer Rd, Suite 116):

  • Wednesday, March 20, 4:00 to 6:00pm
  • Thursday, March 21, 11:30am to 1:30pm and 5:00 to 7:00pm
  • Monday, March 25, 10:00am to 12:00 Noon
  • Tuesday, March 26, 2:00 to 5:00pm
  • Saturday, March 30, 2:00 to 5:00pm

Speaking of which, early voting has begun all over the state. My husband and I voted yesterday in Glendale so that we could fully participate in getting others out to the polls before and on election day. You can too — and you should. You can visit our Early Voting Information page for a link to the municipality where you live to get further information about when and where to go.

I know everything we do is important. But elections, as we should all realize by now, have pretty serious consequences. We need to make sure we elect really good people, up and down the ballot. Otherwise, we risk disappointment, if not disaster. Grassroots North Shore has endorsed Lisa Neubauer for WI Supreme Court. There are too many county, city, and school board elections in our area for our organization to be tracking all of them. But you can find out what's on your specific ballot at MyVote and read up on your local candidates before you vote. I urge you to be informed. And I urge you to vote.
