    Deep Canvassing (7/21)

    sm_deep_Canvassing2.jpg

    Deep canvassing does not seek to get votes for any particular candidate or party. Instead, its purpose is to listen to specific voters' concerns. The techniques canvassers use and the script we are basing our work on asking canvassers to work in pairs and to have a real discussion with voters.

    There are no elections in Wisconsin until February 2020. So this is the perfect time to get to know people on the North Shore, to hear what's on their minds, and to awaken some awareness of the upcoming elections. 

    Please sign up for this important action!

  • posted about gerrymander signup on Facebook 2017-02-10 14:37:05 -0600
    I signed up to insist that the WI legislature draw new district maps in a nonpartisan way. Join me & other activists.

    Gerrymander Signup

    If we want the court-ordered redistricting process to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin, we will have to orchestrate a public outcry about the secretive and hyper-partisan way district lines were drawn in 2011 (the map the court found to be unconstitutional).

    We will have to insist—loudly and publicly and as often as possible—that the new maps must be drawn in an inclusive and transparent way, with bipartisan and nonpartisan input and with public hearings held in locations around the state so as many citizens as possible can participate and be heard.

    Do your part and sign up to work to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin NOW.

    Debbie Kujawski is absolutely right. The goal of limiting early voting to regular business hours is to suppress voting. But of course the actual excuse was to control costs of staffing offices after hours and on weekends.
