MILWAUKEE — To date Voces de la Frontera Action members have knocked on over 42,000 doors in Milwaukee to mobilize the vote. On Tuesday, November 1st, Voces de la Frontera Action members will hold a press conference to announce the early voting totals from Milwaukee’s near South Side, where these efforts have been taking place. Reporters will have the chance to talk to young first time voters and older newly naturalized US Citizen voters who have been involved in canvassing efforts.
“Voces de la Frontera Action’s strong voter mobilization efforts, Donald Trump and Ron Johnson’s anti-immigrant positions, and the recent court decision opening the South Side’s Forest Home Library for early voting have led to historic increases in early voting this year,” said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera Action, who will be among the speakers. “This will lead to massive vote totals for pro-immigrant candidates coming out of Milwaukee, which could tip the balance in these statewide races. Our community has been attacked during this election like never before, but we are rising to meet the challenge.”
