Don't Skip the Wisconsin Supreme Court Primary!
The primary for the Supreme Court of Wisconsin (SCOW) is February 21st. This is an important election as it will determine the candidates on the general election ballot in April. In a nonpartisan race, it is possible for 2 conservatives or 2 progressives to end up on the April ballot which then limits voter choice. The ideological makeup of the court is at stake. With important issues to come before SCOW in 2023, this ideological makeup will determine what is and is not legal in Wisconsin with regards to things like voting rights, women's rights to reproductive health care, local control of taxes, safety from gun violence and the potential to end gerrymandering.
