There are 14 days left until we have a new governor. Fourteen days until we restore Wisconsin ideals and the Wisconsin idea back to the seat of our government. Fourteen days until sanity and common sense returns to Wisconsin.
These last two weeks are absolutely critical to the outcome of the Walker recall. This fight is no one else’s fight but yours. You walked and demonstrated and slept in the Capitol. You spent countless hours circulating petitions. Now is the time to make that pay off, to seal the deal, to make all that energy, emotion and direct activity a reality.
Workers and voters across the state are engaged. Thousands of volunteers are phoning and canvassing their coworkers and neighbors. We have volunteers, fellow AFSCME brothers and sisters, from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Iowa on the ground, and more are coming. The whole country is focused on Wisconsin. We need each of you to once again step up and engage in the final push. We have worked too hard and come too far to let this recall fizzle.
There are 35 ‘We are Wisconsin’ offices throughout the State, as well as Democratic Party offices that are coordinating the last two weeks of getting out the vote. You can go to www.wearewisconsin.org and toggle “volunteers” to find out where the nearest office and opportunity is. Even if there isn’t an office in your area, you can still help out from your home. This is an epic battle and our victory hangs on all of you, your families, relatives and friends involvement. There is no tomorrow!
The early voting process started on 5/21/2012. Any voter can vote early by going to their town, village or city clerk during normal office hours and requesting an early ballot. Identification might be requested. Click here to find your municipal clerk’s info (by county): http://gab.wi.gov/clerks/directory. This opportunity expires on 6/1/2012. It is a good idea to secure your vote early.
