Don't Wait - Do It Today!

You don’t have to wait in a line. You don’t have to wait until Election Day on Nov. 6.

Early voting has begun in Wisconsin, and it’s a great way to make sure your vote counts.

You can vote early in person until Friday, Nov. 2. But don’t wait until the last minute.

Click here to find a list of AFSCME-endorsed candidates for your area.

Then go to your local clerk’s office and cast your ballot. Find out how right here.

Gov. Walker and his allies have tried to put up new barriers to voting. Fortunately, courts have blocked some of the worst measures. But Walker’s tinkering is bound to create extra confusion on Election Day.

Save yourself some hassles and vote early.

And make sure to seek out and vote for pro-worker candidates all the way to the bottom of the ballot.

AFSCME members serving on screening committees have studied the candidates. They’ve asked tough questions to cut through the rhetoric.

Their recommendations for your area can be found here. Feel free to print the page and carry it with you to the polls.

Our country and our state are at the crossroads. A tidal wave of Wall Street corporate cash is trying to overwhelm the voices of working families.  We cannot let it wash away our rights -- our values -- our country.

Today we turn the tide. Vote now!

In solidarity,
