League of Women Voters of Wisconsin launches Spring Election VOTE411 guide
For the Tomahawk Leader
WISCONSIN – The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin this week launched its VOTE411 voter guide for the Tuesday, April 4 Spring Election.
By visiting www.Vote411.org, voters across the state can find information about upcoming races, including Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, circuit court judges and court of appeals judges. Information on ballot measures and local races, like town, village and city boards, is also available.
“This one-stop shop for statewide election information has tools – in both English and Spanish – to help Wisconsin voters navigate the voting process,” a release from the League stated. “These include candidate information, voter registration tools, polling place information and other helpful Election Day resources.”
The League noted that voter guides are “especially helpful for nonpartisan spring elections, as candidates on the ballot are not marked with any party affiliation.”
“On VOTE411, voters can learn more about the responsibilities of these offices and each candidate’s values,” the League stated.
“VOTE411 makes it easy to be an informed voter,” said Eileen Newcomer, LWVWI Voter Education Manager. “Local and judicial elections are so important, as these elected officials make decisions that can directly impact ourselves and our communities. VOTE411 helps voters choose which candidates align with their values and prioritize the issues they care about.”
