Our vote is our voice.

The right to vote is the centerpiece of our democracy, and regardless of political party, all eligible Wisconsin citizens deserve access to free, fair and secure voting – whether they live in a suburban, rural or urban area.

Voting is a right, a privilege and a responsibility. To take that responsibility seriously, we must ensure that our elections are free and fair by safeguarding our voting systems – while at the same time, working to make voting more accessible so that eligible voters throughout Wisconsin can make their voices heard.

To that end, Common Cause in Wisconsin develops and makes available nonpartisan voter education information and resources for voters across our state so you can confidently cast your ballot and know your vote will count.
