New Voters Project

By  | 

The New Voters Project has been organized on campuses and towns in Wisconsin and 5 other states projected to have hotly contested races. The project is sponsored through Pew Charitable Trusts and State Public Interest Groups. A group is up and running at UW-Eau Claire, and while their major push is the presidential election, they brought attention to this week's local races, as well. Organizers say the project is the largest grassroots group in history to try and increase voter turnout.
