Our Rights For All Voting Phone Banking - now through October 29 ACLU of Wisconsin, through their Our Rights For All Voting Campaign will conduct phone banks between now and Thursday, October 29 to speak with voters about their plans to safely cast their ballots. They need your help to contact thousands of voters and ensure that they know of all of their options for voting and have all necessary information to prepare to do so. If you have phone banked before and would simply like a refresher or orientation to doing some in the ACLU’s non-partisan voter contact, please take a look at one of the trainings below and sign up for a shift.

Questions? Contact Ryeshia Farmer, Rights For All Campaign Coordinator ACLU of Wisconsin; rfarmer@aclu-wi.org; (414) 272.4032 ext. 232

Volunteers can sign up to phone bank here

Rides to the Polls - Milwaukee

If you live in the Milwaukee area and are a licensed driver with a vehicle, please consider helping with the WISDOM/MICAH/EXPO effort to provide free car rides to the polls for voters! We will be providing rides to NINE different polling locations in Milwaukee for every week day of early voting AND all day on November 3rd! For more information or to volunteer to be a driver, please email Sylvester Jackson at sylvesterjacksonexpo@gmail.com!

If you're not a driver, you can still help us out by promoting this effort on Facebook!

In an effort to get as many people to the polls as possible, WISDOM recently launched a Relational Voter Program. Through this program, volunteers are able to connect with family and friends to ensure that everyone who can vote has the information and tools needed to do so. We are actively looking for more folks to become volunteer leaders for this program! If you are interested in a free and easy volunteer opportunity that is very flexible to your schedule, requires no cold-calling or door-knocking, and can be done at your leisure, please email Cylest Brooks at cylest.n.brooks@gmail.com to get set up!

The League of Women Voters of Dane County has joined with the Dane County NAACP to form the Dane County Voter ID Coalition. [but includes areas beyond Dane County] The mission of the Coalition is to educate voters about the requirement to show a voter photo ID to receive a ballot on Election Day or when voting absentee. A specific goal is to identify voters who may not have an acceptable voter photo ID, and to arrange for direct assistance to those voters who may need help obtaining one.  The Coalition is exploring 3 approaches:

  • Collecting and analyzing data from the WEC and DMV to identify voters in Dane County who may not have a voter photo ID
  • Conducting outreach at community events
  • Building partnerships with private and public organizations serving clients who are more likely not to have a voter photo ID

If you join the Voter ID Coalition you will get updates of Voter Outreach Opportunities.

See what's happening now at https://www.voteridwisconsin.org/calendar/ including 

 - staffing an outreach table at the Fermentation Fest, a Farm/Art DTour through Oct 4 in Sauk County

 - phone banking with Wisconsin Conservation Voters

 - voter outreach at DAIS in Madison

 - Voter registration at East and West Towne Malls in Madison
