Registered voters who have not voted in the past four years can expect a postcard mailed to them this week from the Wisconsin Elections Commission. In the time between the 2014 and 2018 general elections, there have been 11 statewide elections and primaries and approximately 114,000 Wisconsinites haven’t participated in a single one. Recipients of these postcards will have two options: sign and return to stay registered or re-register if your name or address has changed. Megan Wolf, Wisconsin’s chief election official, says that the mailings are not designed to remove active voters, but rather help identify individuals who haven’t voted. Susan Kohout (KO-howt), Coordinator for the League of Women Voters of Door County, says that citizens have much more power than some believe.
The next election for this area will be the 2020 Spring Election Presidential Preference Vote. Visit MyVote.WI.Gov for assistance.
