NextGen: Wisconsin to turn out young voters on first day of early voting at UW-Madison
Madison, WI — On Monday, October 22, NextGen Wisconsin organizers and volunteers will celebrate the first day of early voting at UW-Madison by giving out donuts and apple cider as they encourage students to cast their ballots ahead of Election Day. In the Wisconsin Supreme Court election this past spring, voter turnout at UW-Madison surged over previous years, and organizers hope to replicate that result in the midterm election to elect progressive candidates like Tony Evers and Tammy Baldwin.
With an initial $2.5 million investment, NextGen Wisconsin is working to engage and mobilize young voters across the state to defeat Scott Walker, re-elect Tammy Baldwin, and flip the First and Sixth Congressional Districts. With over 60 staff and fellows already on the ground, NextGen is working to organize young voters in their communities and has already pledged over 47,000 young Wisconsinites to vote this year.
