Group Spending Millions To Get Young Voters In Wisconsin
Apparently, young voters are very important in Wisconsin because a group is spending millions to get them.
I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, so I would always hear about cheating during elections.
When a candidate won I remember people saying, "How many dead people voted for them?"
I think my favorite motto was "Vote early and often."
For the upcoming election, it sounds like Wisconsin has a little bit of a Chicago feel. Well, at least this isn't illegal.
According to wrex.com,
"A group that focuses on mobilizing young voters says it is spending $2.5 million in Wisconsin as part of an effort to defeat Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Gov. Scott Walker and re-elect Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin."
They are using the money on young voters to get them registered, interested in the candidates, and to actually come out to vote.
I do think it's a great idea to get young voters involved in the process.
I just don't like the idea of the group pushing their agenda on them. They should make their own decisions.
Please make sure you get out and vote.
