Are you a Wisconsin voter?  REMEMBER TO VOTE for TOM BARRETT for governor and MAHLON MITCHELL for lieutenant governor!

Do you live in a district with a state senate recall?  If you do, vote for your local Democratic candidate, who will be one of these people: LORI COMPAS, KRISTEN DEXTER, JOHN LEHMAN, or DONNA SEIDEL!

VOTE ON TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 7 AM to 8 PM CENTRAL TIME

ALL WISCONSIN VOTERS are eligible to vote in the governor and lieutenant governor recall election.

Do you live in a state senate recall district?  Find out by going HERE: https://vpa.wi.gov/...

Know other Wisconsin voters?  Not a Wisconsin voter yourself?  TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW about the recall election and urge them to vote for Tom Barrett, Mahlon Mitchell, and their Democratic state senate candidate if they have one.  Help them find their state senate district using the above link and this map of all the districts.  Remember, districts 13, 21, 23, and 29 are in play.

Now that the bad guys are resorting to dirty tricks targeting the Barrett campaign's phone lines, we need to do everything we can to help get rid of Scott Walker and his lackeys and cleanse the Wisconsin state government of their obnoxious and destructive ideological pandering, and bring back good and responsible governance!  Please help!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
