In the next 16 days, we need to make sure that we make history. We must turn out the vote on Feb. 21 in a very big way. Please urge everyone you know to vote on this date. Let people know that this more important than most primaries! The two candidates who receive the most votes will move into the general election.
You can help by promoting the Wisconsin Tour for Justice and Democracy.
So far, only one candidate has indicated that he is willing to share his answers at our forums. Please, with your help, one or more of the others will surely join in so that we can get the answers that we need to make an informed decision on the upcoming election days - Feb. 21 and Apr. 4.
Join our Letter Campaign asking all WI Supreme Court Candidates to share their answers to our questions.
Help the candidates see that we have the support of the people and groups large and small across Wisconsin who are ready to put democracy in the hands of the people - not just the “Big Money Players” - please, sign our Letter of Support.

Why the Question-mark?
Given that only one candidate has answered us with a “YES” - that he would appear or submit answers in some format at our forums, the question as to IF we will be able to host any “Candidate Forums” is our top concern at this time.
Thanks to the flexibility of the Building Unity banner painter, we were able to adapt to this uncertainty and modify our “VoteMobile” Sign accordingly. Each of the eight Saturdays of the Tour, we will host virtual/in-person hybrid forums at 1:00 p.m. and they will discuss the Supreme Court Candidates. With hopes that when more of the candidates hear from more of us, they will make some kind of effort to answer the questions of Wisconsin Tour for Justice and Democracy and help us all make a most informed vote on both Feb. 21 and Apr. 1 elections.
Please take part in our letter campaign today. (Its a 6-minute job.)
