Sign the Petition to

Wisconsin State Legislators

Voters should have the final say in our democracy. But right now, the Republicans in charge of Wisconsin’s state legislature are trying to rig the system -- because they didn’t like the election results. They’re saying our votes and our voices don’t matter.

We won’t allow this lame-duck legislature to silence Wisconsin voters -- or their contempt for the fundamental principles of our democracy to spread.

Signed,

Republicans in Wisconsin lost the gubernatorial election. Their solution? Go behind our backs to rewrite the rules of our democracy.

When voters took to the polls this fall and elected a new governor -- who promised to serve as a check on the extremist GOP legislature -- these politicians should have gotten the message. But instead, they've called a last-minute special session (with almost no public notice or constituent input) -- and are planning to rig the laws in their favor. 

They're rushing a package through the legislature that would limit the new governor's powers and restrict early voting -- all in an effort to subvert the will of We the People. 

We've seen this before in states like North Carolina, and the message is always the same: "If we can't win in a democracy, we'll break democracy to get our way." We must fight back -- right here, right now, before their plan goes any further. 

Add your name to demand that all state legislators in Wisconsin stand up for voters -- and vote against this hyper-partisan assault on democracy.
