Weekly Democratic Radio Address:
"Make your voice heard"


MADISON – Senator Tim Carpenter offered the following Democratic Weekly Radio address today encouraging Wisconsinites to vote.

"Most voters go to the polls on Election Day to cast their ballot. Others, may request an absentee ballot to be mailed to them. Voters also have the option to vote early by going to your local municipal clerk’s office known as “in-person absentee voting." - Sen. Tim Carpenter

A written transcript of the address is below: 

"Hello, this is State Senator Tim Carpenter. As the Presidential Election Day approaches, I’m reminded of my Mom, who was a poll worker, taking me to her polling place - which was my grade school. She stressed upon me that as American citizens, voting was our civic duty and that many veterans had sacrificed to protect our rights. Mom liked to stay, 'If you don't vote, you can't complain about your government!'

"Most voters go to the polls on Election Day to cast their ballot. Others, may request an absentee ballot to be mailed to them. Voters also have the option to vote early by going to your local municipal clerk’s office known as “in-person absentee voting.” 
 
"If you have any questions about in-person absentee voting or what photo IDs are accepted, please contact your local municipal clerk’s office. Remember, whether you vote on Election Day, by mailed absentee ballot, or in-person absentee voting, your vote is important and please remember to bring your photo ID. Thank you!"
