In Wisconsin, Progressive Turnout Project is opening seven field offices in La Crosse, Madison, Appleton, Milwaukee, and Racine/Kenosha. Our 73 field staff will focus on turning out voters for just one race: the Presidency.
Our 304,000 target voters in Wisconsin include:
- 67,000 voters under 35
- 67,000 non-white voters, including
- 43,000 African-American voters
- 17,000 Latinx voters
- 6,000 AAPI voters
- 154,000 women voters
- 59,000 voters who skipped both the 2016 and 2018 elections
|Voter turnout history||2016 turnout rate||2018 turnout rate|
|Our target voters||54.86%||46.59%|
|All Wisconsin voters||67.34%||61.70%|
Projected impact in Wisconsin
We project boosting turnout by 30,409 voters — that is, new voters who wouldn’t otherwise have turned out. This number is based on data from our 2018 programs, which created an average boost of 10.4%.
What would that look like in Wisconsin?
|2016 Presidential||-22,748 (loss)|
|2018 Gubernatorial||+29,277 (win)|
|2020 Presidential (projected)||+7,661 (win)|
