Join Indivisible Evanston as we canvass in SE WI with the WI Democratic Party. Exact locations to be determined by the Wisconsin Dems as dates get closer.
2/8: Racine County Dems Office, 507 6th Street, Racine, WI
3/21: TBD by WI Dems based on highest need
3/28: TBD by WI Dems based on highest need
4/4: TBD by WI Dems based on highest need
President Obama won Wisconsin in 2008 and 2012. In 2016, Trump won Wisconsin by less than 23K votes. All predictive lists concur that Wisconsin, with just 10 electoral votes, could easily be the state that determines the 2020 presidential winner; our boots on the ground are needed to flip it!
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
We'll be working with the Wisconsin Dems, knocking on doors of residents asking:
- About their plan to vote for Presidential primary, State Supreme Court & local elections on April 7th
- Emphasizing the need to vote for ALL races on the ballot
- Support for elected officials
- Party identification
- Voter registration status
