You probably know there’s an election coming up. You might even know it’s on November 6th. You’ve seen the political ads. You know that Tammy Baldwin will continue to be a women’s health champion for us in the U.S. Senate and that Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes will make a great team as Governor and Lieutenant Governor working to make our state better for all Wisconsinites – but do you know what else is on your ballot November 6th?
How do I figure out what’s on my ballot?
It’s OKAY not to know what’s on your ballot, but you’re going to want to find out before you vote.
Fortunately, it’s pretty easy. Click here, enter your address, and you’ll be able to see a preview of your ballot.
Okay… but who do I vote for?
So glad you asked! Here’s a list of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin’s endorsed candidates.
That means Planned Parenthood trusts them to enact polices to support and empower women. These candidates support access to the high quality, affordable health care provided by Planned Parenthood like birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing and treatment, and safe, legal abortion care.
Why is it important?
Our local lawmakers make decisions that impact whether we have access to health care.
This November, there’s a lot at stake.
Members elected to our State Assembly and State Senate create laws that have an outsized impact on your daily life. But the good news is that YOU have an outsized impact in electing them. Because fewer people live and vote in local districts than statewide races, your vote is even MORE significant.
Make sure you fill out your ENTIRE ballot when you vote on November 6th!
