DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF WISCONSIN 2015 State Convention June 5-6, 2015 Potawatomi Hotel & Casino 1721 West Canal Street, Milwaukee, WI 53233 HOW TO BE A DELEGATE 1. You must have your dues paid up-to-date (no later than 5:00 pm, May 22) If you are uncertain of your membership status, check with our membership chair Karen Kirsch or email DPW membership manager Sean Berger (email@example.com) 2. Give your name to our membership chair or to our county chair to be registered for both your CD convention and the State Convention. Dates for the CD Conventions are listed below. Paying in advance is wise because registration fees are $25 prior to May 15. After that, they increase to $35. It also helps convention planners. 3. All registration ends at 5:00 on May 15. 4. Attend your CD and State Conventions. Be sure you register before the deadlines in order to have voting privileges. 5. In order to vote in the election of officers and on other items at these conventions, you must take care of registration before the deadlines. Despite the great interest in this year's convention, we will likely have space for all who wish to attend from the 4th CD because our quota is so large. However, it is imperative that you meet all deadlines specified above. Numbers for Milwaukee County members who live in the 1st and 5th CDs, on the other hand, are much smaller, so everyone who wishes to be a voting delegate may not fit under those quotas. If that should happen, you are still encouraged to attend the convention and hear the speakers and debates.

We here in Wisconsin take pride in our long tradition of fairness and impartiality when it comes to our judicial system. We believe that those cornerstones provide for the equal justice we deserve as citizens of our great state. Over the last several years we have seen how dark money and hyper partisanship erode all levels of our democracy and threaten the neutrality of our courts. That is why we strongly urge you to fight back by getting out the vote for Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. For 19 years she has exemplified the values we hold most dear when it comes the highest court in our state. To join the virtual phone bank for Justice Bradley, contact Chris Chapek <firstname.lastname@example.org> Check out Justice Bradley's website, http://www.bradleyforjustice.com, and follow her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/AnnWalshBradley, to keep up to date on GOTV efforts in your area. We would also urge you to vote NO on Question 1. http://m.jsonline.com/news/proposed-amendment-would-take-power-from-the-people-b99469115z1-297587671.html Vote April 7th!
