Iron County Progressive


Here's our GO TO on how to stay involved while staying in quarantine!

Yesterday Vilas County reported its first known case of COVID-19.  And so we find out that Vilas County, while somewhat remote, is not completely isolated from the rest of the world.  We hope you are all remaining vigilant and staying safe at home.  Please be sure to practice all necessary precautions when you do need to go out for groceries, to medical appointments or safely pick up a candidate yard sign.

Here are some ways to safely participate in the
2020 Spring Election and Presidential Preference Vote on Tuesday, April 7, 2020
 

GO TO https://myvote.wi.gov.  On this website you can:
1.
Register to vote.  The deadline has been extended to March 30
2.
Request an absentee ballot. You must have enough time to receive your ballot by mail and return it by mail or delivery to your municipal clerk  no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, April 7, 2020.
3. See a sample ballot specifically for your town and ward.
 

GO TO the Vilas Dems HQ in Woodruff to pick up candidate yard signs.  Our office will be open the next two Saturdays from Noon to 2:00 pm.  The volunteer will practice safety measures so you can pick up your signs without any personal contact.
 

GO TO https://wisdems.org/get-involved/volunteer and help spread the word about how to vote on April 7 by joining the Democratic Party of Wisconsin's virtual phone bank.
