[Milwaukee, WI] – The League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County has published its VOTE411.org voter guide to help citizens prepare to vote in the upcoming August 9 primary election. The League encourages citizens to learn about the candidates so they can make an informed choice when casting their ballot.
The League’s voter guide on VOTE411.org is a source of nonpartisan candidate information, where voters can read local, state and national candidates’ responses to the League’s questionnaires. The League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County’s online Fall 2022 Primary Voter Guide, published today, includes responses from candidates for Sheriff in Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, candidates for Milwaukee County Clerk of Circuit Court, and candidates for the City of Milwaukee Aldermanic District 2
Their responses join already published responses from candidates also on the ballot this election for U.S. Senate, U.S. House, governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, state senate, state assembly, and state treasurer.
At VOTE411.org voters can compare candidates’ answers, which are posted verbatim, and find the candidates that best fit their values.
“VOTE411 is a convenient, easy and invaluable resource for voters who want reliable information about voting in Wisconsin,” said Peggy Creer, president of the League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County. “Each year, tens of thousands of Wisconsin voters, many of them young and first-time voters, rely on VOTE411 as their go-to source for unbiased candidate information.”
In addition to the voter guide on VOTE411.org, the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin website has information on voting including what to bring to the polls, early and absentee voting information, and more, available in both English and Spanish.
“Good government, representative government begins at the local level,” said Creer. “We encourage voters to visit VOTE411.org to make a voting plan so they are prepared to vote confidently on August 9 whether they choose to vote absentee prior to the election or in person on election day.” Voters may request an absentee ballot at https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/
