There’s a spring election tomorrow, so host Patty Peltekos delves into the wide expanse of election-related issues in Wisconsin. The basics: How do I vote? Do I need voter identification? Who’s on my ballot? What’s the state referendum about? The abstract: How is voting in Wisconsin different than other states? Will my vote count? What about Russian hacking and ballot integrity? Patty is joined by two guests: Eileen Newcomer of League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, and Professor of Political Science Barry Burden, who is also Director of the Elections Research Center at UW-Madison.
