Early Voting (In-Person Absentee Voting)

Need another reason to vote early? Here’s a good reason:

If you vote by Wednesday October 29th, your name is unlikely to be on the “Get Out the Vote” call sheets. This means you won’t be receiving multiple phone calls reminding you to vote, plus our volunteers won’t have to make as many calls. Instead, volunteers can concentrate on those who really need to be reminded.

So, get out and vote this week!

Transportation Referendum

ma2signs10a

We’ve had a lot of questions about the Transportation Referendum on the November ballot.

The “Dem” position on the referendum is to vote “no.”

A “yes” would would “tie the hands” of future legislatures and would limit transportation funding to highways only.

This would exclude some funding for light rail, high speed rail and other forms of transportation, including transferring some funds to local and county governments to patch the local roads.

More information can be found in the article by Senator Fred Risser at:

http://m.host.madison.com/news/opinion/column/guest/sen-fred-risser-vote-no-on-transportation-amendment/article_8daecced-d6be-564c-9f49-2a7ce8b40414.html?mobile_touch=true
