MADISON, WI: The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin releases the nonpartisan voter guide on VOTE411.org today for the 2019 Spring General Election for statewide races. This online resource provides information for the spring, nonpartisan elections to help Wisconsin voters navigate the voting process and read candidates’ answers to questions about their candidacy for office. VOTE411.org provides candidate information, voter registration tools, and other helpful Election Day information.
“VOTE411.org provides voters with the information they seek leading up to the April 2nd election. From VOTE411.org, voters can find candidate information for statewide and local offices, upcoming League sponsored candidate forums near them, and general voter information,” said Eileen Newcomer, LWVWI Voter Education Coordinator. “Thousands of voters across Wisconsin use the site to get informed before going to the polls on Election Day.”
The League recommends that voters consult reliable, nonpartisan sources of information such as VOTE411.org, as well as the candidates' own websites and materials.
“We are grateful to all of the candidates who responded to our questionnaire,” Newcomer added. “We receive feedback every election from voters about how they appreciate the opportunity to learn more about the candidates through each candidate’s own words in the answers posted to VOTE411.org.”
The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin sent questionnaires to all the candidates whose names will appear on the ballot running for State Supreme Court Justice and Court of Appeals Judge, Districts II, III and IV. Each candidate’s responses are posted verbatim, so voters get the candidate’s information in the candidate’s own words. Candidates who did not respond are marked “No candidate response” in the voter guide.
The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin is a grassroots, nonpartisan political organization that advocates for informed and active participation in government. There are 20 local Leagues in Wisconsin. More information at lwvwi.org.
