This post assumes the reader lives in the geographic region of the United States of America labeled and organized as ‘Wisconsin.’
The 2018 Wisconsin Primary Election day is Tuesday, August 14, 2018.
If you live in Wisconsin, mark your calendar and Tuesday, August 14, 2018
The Wisconsin state government online resource to check all things related to Wisconsin voters is MyVote Wisconsin — find your polling place, what’s on your ballot, update your voter information, register, vote absentee. It’s there. And Wisconsin is one of the 19 states that allow you to register on election day!
The Wisconsin Primary is a partisan primary meaning that when you show up to vote you will be given a ballot with candidates from only one party. Registered parties:
- Libertarian (2 candidates): Governor and Lieutenant Governor
- Wisconsin Green (2 candidates): Governor and Lieutenant Governor
- Constitution (2 candidates): Attorney General and State Treasurer
A sample ballot is available at MyVote Wisconsin>What’s On My Ballot (tab). Enter your address, click ‘Search‘. (Note, you won’t have to enter your state! It is Wisconsin!)
And August 15? Buckle up. There will be 83 days of heavy campaigning by the primary winners against their opposition. The Koch brothers are big spenders in the state but as far as I know, it is still illegal to buy your vote.
Why I will not vote for any (R) GOPee-er since August 5, 2011 or ever: “S&P lowers the U.S.’s credit rating because the GOP says it might not let the government pay its bills.”¹ During the Obama Administration, the racist GOP was willing to sacrifice the credit rating OF THE COUNTRY, full stop, OF THE COUNTRY. Morally bankrupt. Party over country.
And 2018? Eh, <insert Gallic shrug here>. No problem. A $1,300,000,000,000 or $1.3X10¹² spending package. White bloated POTUS. Sure, why not?
They will bankrupt us all.
