Wisconsin Supreme Court: Your Vote Is Needed on February 21

Your vote counts button​​​​​​​The February 21 primary is crucial to the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Because there are two conservative and two liberal candidates running, and February's primary will advance the top two vote getters, it is possible that two candidates with the same judicial philosophy could advance to the April 4 spring election. Not many people vote in spring primaries, so the results can be affected by a small shift in voting patterns. 

The upshot is: if you want to make sure there is a candidate who reflects your values in April, you also need to vote in February!

What do you need to do to get ready?

• Make sure you’re registered to vote at your current address

• Request an absentee ballot if you will be out of town or busy that day

• Read nonpartisan candidate profiles and listen to candidate forums

• Learn how the court impacts issues you care about

To check your voter registration and request absentee ballots, check the state MyVote website.

For nonpartisan candidate profiles and links to candidate forums, try Ballotpedia.

For nonpartisan information about issues that may come before the Supreme Court, see Vote411. Important issues may include election administration, legislative redistricting, environmental regulation, government transparency, and reproductive health care.

Don’t put it off—if you’re going to be out of town, order your absentee ballot today! Municipal clerks also offer in-person early voting options in the two weeks prior to the election.
