Do you have a plan to vote in the April 7 election?
On Tuesday, April 7, voters will choose our next Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice. The Supreme Court makes decisions that affect the civil rights and liberties of everyone who lives in Wisconsin on issues like voting rights, privacy rights, criminal justice, reproductive rights, and many more.
The two candidates are:
- Jill Karofsky, Dane County Circuit Court Judge
- Daniel Kelly, Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice
Because the Justices come with different perspectives, they often have different ideas about what the constitution and laws mean. That's why your vote for which judge should be on the Supreme Court can make a difference. ACLU members have a great record of voting in primaries. On April 7th, remember to be an ACLU Voter for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
The ACLU does not endorse or oppose candidates for office, but we do want all voters to cast an informed vote. Both candidates were contacted and invited to share their views on the same set of questions. We received a response from Judge Karofsky, but we have not yet received a response from Justice Kelly.
