Welcome to the Dunn County Democrats Website!
If you had told me 5 years ago that I would be Chair of my local Democratic Party one day, I never would have believed you. It's true. My political experience prior to 2008 consisted of making signs, handing out stickers and hoping no one asked me to have a conversation with a voter.
I chose to share the photo below not because it's the most flattering ever taken of me, but because it was taken on my 1st day of real political action ever: May 25, 2008.
Voter ID will be back for the November election in Wisconsin. This will cause massive disenfranchisement of voters - particularly in view of how rushed the implementation of this will be. The GAB, DMV, local clerks, and other agencies are scrambling currently to understand what the new policy is, and how they will implement it. Start working now to get ID for the November election if you do not have valid ID. Many people will find it impossible to get proper ID in this timeline.
Many absentee ballots have already been sent out, and do not have information on Voter ID with them. Wil these ballots be counted? How can we expect people throughout the state to understand what they have to do to vote? Get to the polls early - there WILL be unprecedented lines. There WILL be unprecedented confusion. More on this once the smoke clears.

Well -- it's been quite a day. The publicly exciting part is that the ACLU lawsuit against the Wisconsin ban on same-sex marriage was successful in federal court this afternoon. Justice Crabb ruled the law unconstitutional, saying
"Quite simply, this case is about liberty and equality, the two cornerstones of the rights protected by the United States Constitution"
