Coming Up: Wisconsin!
There is an extremely important Supreme Court race coming up in Wisconsin. The primary is February 21st, 2023 and the general is April 4th, 2023. Vote Forward letters will be available after the primary. Check back here for updates and letter pickup options.
Winning this election would give Democrats a 4-3 majority on the Court, which based on everything we know about pending cases, would enable us to accomplish at least four big important things:
Protect democracy in Wisconsin and hence the country by restoring voting rights and providing a critical safeguard against election subversion in what is arguably America’s #1 swing state.
Restore abortion rights which are currently illegal under the 1849 abortion ban that took effect after the fall of Roe.
Eliminate the gerrymander of Wisconsin’s Congressional maps which would likely net Democrats 1-2 House seats in 2024.
Eliminate the gerrymander of Wisconsin’s state-level maps, which would net 10-15 state legislative seats, and give Democrats a chance to win a governing trifecta.
Off-cycle elections like this one have relatively low baseline turnout, so our Get-out-the-Vote letters will be that much more important!
