“The Most Important Race You Probably Haven’t Heard About” –Politico
You may not have heard, but there is a crucial election taking place in April. The seat of a conservative justice in the Wisconsin Supreme Court is up for election on April 4, and this seat will be vital not only for Wisconsin but also for the rest of the country.
That is why the Blue Wave Postcard Movement has decided to endorse one of the candidates. This candidate is pro-democracy, supports women's rights, and is the most likely to win the general election. We will also launch postcard campaigns to increase voter turnout immediately after the primary election.

Blue Wave Postcard Movement endorses Janet Protasiewicz for Wisconsin Supreme Court
Wisconsin voters have an opportunity to shift the balance of the WI State Supreme Court from conservative to liberal. This court will make critical decisions on issues such as abortion rights, voting rights, and gerrymandering.
If conservative candidates Jennifer Dorrow or Dan Kelly win, there may be negative outcomes for these important issues. However, if a liberal majority is established on the court, the decisions made will better reflect the will of the majority of Wisconsin voters.
Janet Protasiewicz supports a woman’s right to make decisions about her own body. She believes that every vote should count, and wants to protect democracy from the attacks of radical partisanship. She is also the most likely candidate to win in the general election.
We enthusiastically endorse Janet Protasiewicz for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
In 2019, a conservative candidate won by less than 0.5% of votes casted, leading to more gerrymandering, suppression of voting rights, and putting the lives of thousands of women at risk. Now, the voters of Wisconsin will have a chance to change that. You can find more information about Janet here and contribute to her campaign here.

Here are some facts you need to know about voting in Wisconsin (from this voter’s guide):
- Wisconsin’s official MyVote site gives you tools and requirements for registering to vote, voting early, voting absentee, finding your polling place, and more.
- When you register, whether by mail, online, or in person, you’ll need proof of residence. This page lists acceptable forms of proof and describes how you’ll need to present that proof.
- You’ll need to present a valid photo ID when you vote. This page lists acceptable forms of ID, including a valid Wisconsin driver license or a free Wisconsin state ID card.
- If you’re a student, your student photo ID card may work as voter ID, but only if it’s issued by a Wisconsin university or college, or technical college, and only if it contains the date the card was issued and your signature, with an expiration date no later than two years after date of issuance. (Valid student IDs can still be used if expired, but must be accompanied by a separate document that proves current enrollment, such as a tuition fee receipt, enrollment verification letter, or class schedule.)
- When a school’s ID card isn’t sufficient as a voter ID, some schools will issue a separate photo ID card for voting on request. Links on this page show which schools’ IDs are acceptable for voting and which schools provide a voting-compliant ID.
