November Election Voter Guide from League of Women Voters of Wisconsin Available Now

 

MADISON, WI:  The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin launches of the nonpartisan voter guide on VOTE411.org. This online resource provides information for the statewide elections to help Wisconsin voters navigate the voting process for the November 6 election. VOTE411.org provides candidate information, voter registration tools, and other helpful Election Day information.

The League recommends that voters consult reliable, nonpartisan sources of information such as VOTE411.org, as well as the candidates' own websites and materials.

“Thousands of voters used VOTE411.org as their source to find unbiased candidate information for the Primary and we’re hoping to reach even more in the lead up to the General Election. We put together this resource so voters can find the information they need to make informed decisions on Election Day,” said Eileen Newcomer, LWVWI Voter Education Coordinator. “Helpful and simple, VOTE411.org has tools to see where the candidates stand on issues important to them. Voters can use the information on VOTE411.org to help them make a plan to vote and save time on Election Day.”

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin sent questionnaires to all the candidates whose names will appear on the ballot running for Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, U.S. Senator, Representative in Congress, State Senator (odd-numbered districts), and Representative to the Assembly (all districts). The League called on the candidates to state their positions on a range of issues. 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.
