LEX GOTV Letter Writing to WI Voters at Marty’s House
March 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Wisconsin is among the worst states in the country for gerrymandering its voting districts to favor the GOP. Now there’s a unique opportunity to begin the change: a special election on April 2nd for a vacant seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. If the more liberal candidate wins, the liberal wing of the court will have a chance to gain majority control in 2020. Gaining a majority on the court is essential to safeguard a fair redistricting process after the 2020 census. A win by the conservative candidate would expand the conservative majority on the court to 5-2 and leave intact the current unfair gerrymandering. Come help us get out the vote in Wisconsin. We’ll have everything you need to write about 20 get-out-the vote letters, including pens, letters and envelopes, addresses, and stamps–plus some snacks and drinks! (We will welcome contributions for postage and supplies). We hope to see you here! Onward! -Diane and Marty
