Election Day – Tuesday, April 7
Vote NO on Question 1
Wisconsin has had an independent state Supreme Court ever since becoming a state in 1848. The non-partisan elected judges run for their seats on the court, as does the Chief Justice.
Earlier this year, the right-wing conservatives in the Wisconsin legislature put a constitutional amendment on the ballot that would change the way the Chief Justice is elected, shifting from a neutral system to one where the other justices vote on who controls the court’s administration and caseload.
Make no mistake — Question 1 is a bald faced power grab by right-wing legislators, meant to shift administration of our state’s Supreme Court from a neutrally selected and unquestionably highly qualified Chief Justice towards an extreme right-wing agenda. Wisconsin lawmakers are trying to interfere with the court system to further their own blatantly partisan interests.
You have a choice: vote NO on Question 1 to maintain a fair and non-partisan state Supreme Court — or say goodbye to the last non-partisan branch of state government.
Election Day is on Tuesday, April 7, but early voting has already started in clerk’s offices across the state. You can vote early at your local clerk’s office between now and Friday, April 3. Learn more about early voting (also called in-person absentee voting) here.
Wisconsin’s right-wing legislators are counting on you to not show up on Election Day. This year, let’s get to the polls and vote to keep Wisconsin’s radically conservative lawmakers from manipulating our state’s Supreme Court.
