Why 43.2% of Wisconsin voters didn’t cast a ballot in 2014


Are you planning to vote this year? Many Americans sat out of the 2014 elections, even in Wisconsin. While there’s a lot to be cynical of this election, the stakes are high. Beyond the presidential race, the U.S. House and Senate are at stake.  You deserve to have a say in the direction we take as a country in the years ahead.

In 2014, 56.8% of Wisconsinites voted. While Wisconsin did pretty well nationally, ranking second, it’s still not enough. Your participation is required to do even better this year.

Over the remaining days, it’s up to you to be a voter, but we want to make it as easy as possible. That’s why we launched the 2016 Voter Toolkit, at www.VoteforJobs.com, an easy online tool for you to use.

Take Action:

  1. Vote now and avoid the lines on Election day by voting early
  2. Make your plan for Election Day

The Census Bureau found that nearly half of non-voters didn’t vote because they just didn’t make it to a polling place – they were too busy, out of town, or just plain forgot.

This election is too important to take a pass. At the very least, don’t show up to vote unprepared: check your polling location and be ready for Election Day.
