About This State
Badgers, badgers, badgers. Everyone is counting on you this year. We won’t get into why. Water under the bridge. We love you and your Rodgers and your cheese curds -- anything you need this year, you let us know. We’ll come shovel your driveway if it means getting out a few more votes in Waukesha County. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know about voting in Wisconsin this year.Register To Vote
Wisconsin is mailing absentee ballot applications to all voters because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Any voter can also request an absentee ballot without an excuse online or by mail. If you are requesting an absentee ballot, election officials must receive your application by Oct. 29. Absentee ballots must be signed by a witness, and received by Election Day Nov. 3.
The Supreme Court ruled that ballots postmarked on or before Nov. 3 will only be counted if they are received by November 3rd. Return your ballot as early as possible and keep checking the Wisconsin Elections site here:
Why Is This State Special?
Wisconsin broke hearts in 2016 and could be the closest battleground state of all in 2020. While Trump won Wisconsin by less than one point in 2016, Wisconsin Democrats turned it around in 2018 and won the governorship by less than one point. Wisconsin may be a more tough state to win than Pennsylvania or Michigan because it has more rural areas, but the Democratic victories in 2018, combined with a new and improved organizing strategy, could help the party pull out a win in 2020.ROAD TO WIN

Get Mitch or Die Trying
Mad that the Senate isn't doing anything except passing a corporate tax cut, even in the amidst of a pandemic? Blame the self-described "Grim Reaper" of progress, Mitch McConnell. With 18% approval in his home state, he probably shouldn't be leading the country. Time to take the gavel away.
