Volunteers help Madison Clerk reach voters

Volunteers Help Madison Clerk Reach Voters

More than a dozen volunteers, mostly League members, assisted Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl stuffing envelopes to notify approximately 8000 Madison voters about Voter Photo ID requirements. These voters had all registered since 2006 using the last four digits of their Social Security number, indicating that they did not have a Wisconsin Driver License or State ID card. These voters were also still on the rolls, indicating that they had voted with in the last four years. The letter from the Clerk informed them about the new requirement to provide a Voter Photo ID and included a brochure or card explaining what ID they would need to vote in the future.

Industrious volunteers completed the mailing in less than three hours on Friday morning, June 26th. Moods were elevated by news of the Supreme Court ruling affirming same-sex marriage as the law of the land, and there were many lively discussions.

We are very grateful for Witzel-Behl's voter outreach efforts and her office's motto: We exist to assist.
