VOTER REGISTRATION TRAINING!

The La Crosse City Clerk, Teri Lehrke, will hold two Special Registration Deputy Training sessions for people interested in becoming certified to register La Crosse city residents to vote. Both sessions will be held in the third floor conference room of City Hall, 400 La Crosse St. The first session will be on Monday, August 31 at 1:30 p.m. and the second on Wednesday, September 2 at 9:00 a.m.

 Call 608 789-7556 to RSVP.


Please be aware that any voter registration activity must be NON-PARTISAN! 

With new changes to Wisconsin's voting and voter registration laws, it is vitally important that we make sure as many people as possible are registered to vote. Having some people certified now will help if we get some student and community events going this fall. This is a national issue. Let's do our part!

This article from Bull Moose Nation also explains why Bernie is going to need even more votes than normal because of the number of "super delegates" whose votes are not bound by the will of primary voters.

In addition, we know that voter demographics are very important for the good guy to win (note that this article doesn't even mention Bernie!)

I'm not sure! I think as long as you are an eligible voter, you can train to register others. But this training only qualifies you for City of La Crosse I THINK. I would call the city clerk and ask. Then post back here!
