Today is Election Day! Please do your constitutional duty and vote, if you haven’t already. (Many have, absentee.)
The work of our clerk’s office has made in-person voting as safe as possible during the pandemic, and you will see those precautions in action on Tuesday. I thank them for their efforts, and all of our pollworkers, dedicated citizens bring democracy to life. Now, more than ever.
There are only two contested races on the fall 2020 primary ballot: Milwaukee County Register of Deeds on the Democratic side, and Congress on the Republican side.
I am proudly endorsing Issy Ramon in Register of Deeds primary. He has made major strides to make that office more transparent, efficient and effective, since he was appointed to the job a year ago. He deserves more time to continue those efforts.
I am on the Democrat ballot, unopposed, in the 21st Assembly race, and am looking forward to the November 3 general election. I plan to stay as mayor when I win. Details here.
Here is a sample ballot. And here are additional voting details …
