The April 7th State Supreme Court election in Wisconsin is crucial to the future of fair elections in the state and our national fight to roll back Republican gerrymandering in 2021.
We're helping the Democratic Party of Wisconsin elect the progressive, pro-democracy candidate, Judge Jill Karofsky, to the WI State Supreme Court. Republicans are putting their money behind her opponent, so we’re pulling out the stops to elect Judge Karofsky.
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, our approach to this election looks different than a traditional race. First, all in-person voter contact activities – like door-to-door canvassing – have been suspended, which means phone banking is the primary way to reach voters. Second, in order to encourage social distancing, we’ll need to reach voters as early as possible to help them to take advantage of vote-by-mail.
To that end, we're calling Democratic voters to make sure they understand the stakes of this race, know who the candidates are in this nonpartisan election, and have a plan to vote – preferably by mail.
To make calls for this race, sign up for the days you want to make calls and register for this event. Don't worry if you've never made calls before or feel like you don't know much about this race.
After you sign up, you’ll immediately receive an automated email with all the information you need to make calls: training materials, background on Judge Karofsky, and contact information for Swing Left staff who can provide additional support. We can start winning in Wisconsin in 2020 by getting out the vote in their April 7 Primary through phone banks. The phone banks are daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through April 7.
