Our Wisconsin Revolution (5/4/20)
I am aware of a concerted social media effort to discredit the online tool Our Wisconsin Revolution has provided to help eligible voters get candidates on the ballot for the August and November elections.
The tool doesn’t play favorites. Nearly 400 candidates from every part of the state, regardless of party, who’ve filed to run with the Wisconsin Elections Commission are included. Their inclusion is not an endorsement. The purpose of this tool is not to promote a political agenda or any particular candidates. Its purpose is to help the public engage in the process of getting nomination signatures during a public health emergency in hopes of preventing a situation where a substantial number of candidates fall short of the number of signatures needed to qualify for a place on the ballot, thereby limiting the choices voters will have in those elections. Voters are trusted to decide for themselves who they want to sign for. The point of this project isn’t to tell you who to support. It’s to give you a tool to help make sure democracy survives COVID-19.
The information on the forms you find when you go to nominationpapers.
