On Tuesday, November 6, the Wisconsin state midterm elections brought a blue wave to Wisconsin, with Tony Evers claiming victory over two-term reigning Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. And the turnout was much higher in this election than in previous years, as the City of Madison clerk reported more than 92 percent of eligible voters cast a ballot in this election. In a city with a considerable college-age population, you have to give credit where credit is due: young voters undoubtedly made a difference in this election. NextGen Wisconsin helped make sure these voters knew about the issues and where and how to cast a ballot. Buzz producer Kai Brito interviewed Joe Waldman, Madison regional organizing director for NextGen Wisconsin to learn about their organization.
