With so many volunteers coming from all of our groups, we have decided to expand the program as follows:
- We are re-opening the Teutonia DMV on the north side of Milwaukee
- Shifts will be available every day of the week at both locations:
- Chase DMV (2701 South Chase)
- Teutonia DMV (6073 North Teutonia)
- We are varying shift times at both locations to have both 3-hour and 2-hour shifts as indicated in the chart below:
- All volunteers, including Supermarket Legends and Field Team 6, sign up through a one system (Sign-Up Genius), using the link below:
- Shifts have been added through May. We will add new shifts on a monthly basis.
Email Laura at email@example.com for new instructions – updated to reflect these changes.
Thank you all for making this program so successful. We are expanding the program only because the response from everyone has been so overwhelming!

Write Letters For Wisconsin General Election
Although North Shore Indivisible is no longer facilitating letter writing for Wisconsin and other swing states, we are advertising the opportunity. Laura is available to help you get started on this activity on your own. Sign up at: https://votefwd.org to get started. If you need support, email Laura at: firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll be happy to help get you registered and writing letters!
Since Wisconsin is a critical swing state for the upcoming midterm elections, we are looking for volunteers to register Wisconsin voters at DMV (Department of Motor Vehicle) offices in Milwaukee. DMV offices are the perfect location since visitors are waiting long periods of time and have the correct identification paperwork with them. We have assembled a well-organized program to train volunteers and process registrations with amazing effectiveness. We are starting with one location in South Milwaukee (2701 S. Chase) with a morning shift (9:30 to 12:30) and an afternoon shift (12:30 to 3:30) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you are interested, drop an e-mail to email@example.com. Bob will send you more information about the program, including ways to sign up for ZOOM training sessions and registration shifts.

Last night, Ben Wikler, Chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, went on The Rachel Maddow Show to talk about what’s at stake as primary elections begin in sections of Wisconsin. You can watch a quick clip and support the WisDems ahead of Tuesday’s elections. Wisconsin is ground zero in the GOP effort to pass restrictive anti-voter legislation pursuant to Trump’s Big Lie and steal the 2024 Elections. Republicans know Wisconsin – as it so often is – will be a nail-biter this year, and they will do everything they can to undermine future elections if they win in November.
To stop a Republican takeover in 2024 and fight for the future of American democracy, we need to organize for these local races now.
Election conspiracists who believe Trump’s Big Lie are on the ballot in Wisconsin, but so are staunch defenders of American democracy. In a state like ours, where elections break by single percentage points, we can make a difference right now by investing in local races in the spring, and making sure we have strong advocates for our democracy in office.
Ahead of our crucial local elections, will you pitch in $20 – or whatever you can afford – to fund our organizing efforts all across the country. The local races we’re up against now could determine the mechanics of Wisconsin’s – and American – democracy for this pivotal election year and beyond »
