Vote February 21st

Dear Editor,
An election in February?? Oh, for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Doesn't really affect me, right?
Wrong! The court will probably rule on voting rights, reproductive choice, gerrymandering, environmental protection, and more.
But it's just the primary. Might as well wait for the real election in April, right?
Wrong! For two big reasons:
1. Two liberals and two conservatives are on the ballot. If two candidates with similar views advance to the April election, your choice will be much narrower.
2. Usually, turnout for a February election is less than 20 percent, so your vote makes a big impact. You can be the voice for 5 people.
Be a super voter. Research the candidates and vote on February 21st.
Thank you,
Kathie Swanson
