While other elections are on hold, the Wisconsin Supreme Court election is still on, scheduled for next Tuesday, April 7. This is a crucial election. The Badger State has some of the worst partisan gerrymandering in the country. That’s allowed Republicans here to suppress the vote, massively cut education and health care, and attack reproductive rights.
Liberal Dane County Circuit Judge Jill Karofsky is contesting current Supreme Court Justice Daniel Kelly, who has never been elected (then-Gov. Scott Walker appointed him to the court). There is hope: In the primary, Kelly received nearly 353,000 votes; in comparison, Karofsky took nearly 262,000, and another liberal candidate, Ed Fallone, received just over 89,000 votes.
This election looks different due to COVID-19. Per the Wisconsin State Journal, lawsuits are mounting, and Gov. Tony Evers on Friday asked the Legislature to send absentee ballots to registered voters — raising resistance from GOP leaders.
But we have a plan to win.
Since all in-person voter contact activities are suspended, phone banking is the primary way to reach voters.
