Common Cause in Wisconsin
Urges You to Take Action!

Help those without transportation get to their polling place.

As we did in 2014, CC/WI is currently identifying and recruiting organizations and individuals statewide willing to give free rides to the polls on Election Day and/or during the early voting period.

We are also raising awareness that help is available in communities across the state by sharing this "master list" of ride options widely. The list will be updated regularly as we add more groups/volunteers.

If you would like to be a part of this effort to help folks get to the polls, let us know by email or phone (608-658-2109) and we’ll add you to our list of drivers within your community. You can also help out by letting us know of any other individuals or groups in your area willing to pitch in and give someone a ride.

Help protect the integrity of the 2016 Fall election.

Sign up and receive training to be a poll worker. Municipalities across the state are shorthanded and are looking for folks who can work at their polling place. Contact your local municipal clerk for more information.

Or volunteer to be an election observer. Our longtime coalition partners at the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin are training nonpartisan poll observers across the state to watch for signs of voter disenfranchisement, and to monitor the way new election laws and procedures are being applied. Sign up now using the League’s online Election Observer Volunteer Form.

Contact Your Legislators Directly

Sometimes, the best way you can be involved is to be aware of what's going on at the Capitol and to stay in touch with those who represent you.

Write to them, call them, tell them what you think!

And don't forget to tell them when they do something good! Legislators often say that the best way to get through to them is with a personal letter. Phone calls are also good. Email is generally not effective, because there are so many coming in.

For addresses, phone numbers and other contact information, click here.

Who are they?

The easiest way to find out who your legislators are is to follow the link below to the Wisconsin Legislature website.

Just click on your home area on the Wisconsin map, and the site will tell you who your state representatives are.

It's that easy.
