Commonly known for its dairy industry and publicly owned football team, in 2020 Wisconsin also became known as a state that faced extensive voter disenfranchisement in its presidential primary election. Given issues with both absentee and in-person voting, it is crucial that we advocate for policies to ensure that doesn't happen again in the general election in November. From hazard pay for poll workers, to ensuring we can staff in-person polling locations, to providing pre-paid postage for all absentee ballots, there are many areas in which Wisconsinites need help, and you can find out how to pitch in below.
Contact Governor Evers
Contact Governor Evers and the WI legislature to demand that they:
- Remove witness requirements for absentee ballots
- Provide pre-paid postage for absentee ballots and accept all ballots postmarked Election Day
- Repeal voter ID laws
- Expand early voting
- Provide PPE for poll workers
- Send absentee ballot applications to all Wisconsities

Become a Democracy Organizer for Your Community
As a Democracy Organizer, you’ll receive training and assistance on how to activate your own team of volunteers. Your mission: to use the resources available to you through Brady and March for Our Lives to help your volunteers take the action to eliminate the barriers to accessible voting, for this years election and beyond.
What does that actually mean? We’ll ask you to create your own team of volunteers made up of your friends and family. Then we’ll train you on the campaign’s strategy and tactics. So in an average week on the campaign, we’ll ask you to set up a video-conference meeting with your team where you’ll explain the team’s actions for the week. Don’t worry--you won’t be expected to do this on your own. We’ll help every step of the way! We expect this work will take 5-7 hours a week.
