Help us flip Michigan and Wisconsin blue! As part of the Indivisible Chicago Alliance, Indivisible Evanston is partnering with the organizations Rust Belt Rising and Register2Vote to to register more voters in Michigan and Wisconsin than the difference in the 2016 election in those two states. Considering that Trump won MI by 10,704 and WI by 22,278 votes, this project has the potential of having significant impact on the outcome in November.
The Wisconsin Voter Registration Program, an offshoot of Indivisible Evanston, has launched a massive voter registration effort to reach over 100,000 targeted unregistered voters by phone. Based on past program experience, we expect to potentially register 30,000 “highly likely” Democrats.
After the targeted voters receive their registration packet in the mail, our volunteers will follow up with “chase calls” asking them to complete their registrations and send them in.
Want to join us? To participate, just sign up below and send an email to the project coordinator, Bob Best.

Indivisible Evanston Mission Statement
The mission of Indivisible Evanston is to resist Donald Trump, his administration, and like-minded Members of Congress, and to remove them all from office on November 3, 2020, before they replace our democracy with an authoritarian plutocracy. We do not expect our members or allies to agree on all issues, but we invite those who agree that the Trump presidency is harming our country to work together to replace him and his GOP enablers. We seek to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, and we are committed to non-violence in all our actions.
