Election day is just a few days away now. Hopefully, you have been following the candidates running in your area, but sometimes, it is difficult to garner the information you need to make an informed decision when voting. Since these are non-partisan races, how do you know who is the more conservative choice?
If you live in the southeast corner of Wisconsin, you can take a look at the Wisconsin Conservatives - Vote April 3rd! Voter Guide*. It covers School Board Candidates, County Races, and Municipal Races, where identified Conservatives are running, from Appleton to Kenosha. There is even a spot to leave a comment on each of these web pages.
I live in Brookfield. So on this voter guide, my Elmbrook School Board incumbents Wartman and Lambert are named as the conservative choices. I heartily concur. In the County Races section, the only contested Waukesha County Supervisor race for us is for District 7 in northeastern Brookfield (also includes southeast Menomoneee Falls, Butler). The Voter Guide picks Jennifer Grant. She is endorsed by my State Assembly Representative Dale Kooyenga and the Menomonee Falls Taxpayer Association. She would get my vote too, but I live south of her district. Our Municipal Aldermen are not on the guide, but in the 3 contested races, I would pick Dan Sutton in District 1 and Renee Lowerr in my District 7. I know Lowerr to be Conservative.
For those living in Milwaukee County, the important Milwaukee County Conservative Candidates are listed:
- Milwaukee Comptroller: Bunting
- Milwaukee Judge 17: Nelson Phillips - JudgeNelsonPhillips.com
- Milwaukee 1: Cegielski
- Milwaukee 9: Taylor
- Milwaukee 11: Borkowski
- Milwaukee 17: Sanfelippo
- Milwaukee 18: Alexander
So keep doing your homework and then go vote on Tuesday, April 3, 2012. Polls open at 7am and close at 8pm.
It is unlikely Voter ID will be in place, but one part of the law stands: You must sign the Poll List before you vote.
