The most important election of our lifetime is only one year away, and We. Need. YOU!!!

UPDATE: Sunday venue change.

Saturday Nov. 2nd

9am–12pm & 12pm–3pm

meet at 220 S. Main St, Viroqua 

(between McIntosh Memorial Library and WTC)

Sunday Nov. 3rd


meet in the dining area at the Viroqua Food Coop, 609 N. Main St.

Vernon County Dems are looking for volunteers to get involved with our Canvassing Days of Action on November 2nd and 3rd. It's a great opportunity to talk to your neighbors and find out what issues are important to them, and what they would like to see fixed on the local, state and federal level.

This canvass program is NOT to endorse a candidate or campaign. The purpose is to find out how people in our community are feeling. We want to make sure that people in our area know that their voice matters, and most importantly, we want them to be heard.

Canvass shifts are available from 9AM-12PM and 12PM-3PM on Saturday November 2 and Sunday November 3. (Don't worry - shifts will be done before the Packers game starts on Sunday!) Saturday Viroqua shifts will meet at the LINK at the listed time (between McIntosh Memorial Library and WTC). Sunday Viroqua shifts will meet in the dining area at the Viroqua Food Coop, 609 N. Main St. Please be on time!!!

Sign up to help here:

Sat. Nov. 2

Sun. Nov. 3

Training will be provided, as well as coffee and snacks. If you're not comfortable going door to door, you can still get involved by being a driver, doing data entry, or by simply walking along with another canvasser.

Canvassing is one of the easiest and most rewarding ways to get involved in your community. You might even call it fun! We hope you can join us to help make sure community voices are heard, and to take action towards 2020! #1Year2Win #WisDems

Delicious food, inspiring conversations, and even some Packers football at our Fall Potluck!

ICYMI: Our Fall Potluck and Volunteer Appreciation was a huge success! Over 100 friends and neighbors from Vernon County (and beyond) gathered to celebrate our collective efforts over the past year and learn about our TOP SECRET PLAN for winning in 2020 and beyond.

Ok, it's actually not a secret. It's YOU! We need you to make a commitment and get involved. As Senator Shilling said at the potluck, none of us alone can do what needs to be done. But all of us working together can accomplish incredible things. So what can you do? So glad you asked!

1. Invest your time. Real change happens when everyday people roll up their sleeves and get to work. Whether you're a consummate canvasser, a planner of exquisite events, or simply a hard-working human, WE. NEED. YOU. Contact us today to discuss how you can get involved.

2. Invest financially. When you make a donation to the Vernon County Democratic Party you are directly supporting the work of reaching every voter in our county. Specifically, your contribution will help us secure a 2020 office space where we can organize voter outreach, hold meetings, and host candidates and events. You'll also be helping with printing and advertising costs, digital outreach, and keeping our dedicated volunteers supplied with snacks. A generous donor has agreed to match all contributions up to a total of $3000 through our next meeting on Wednesday, October 23rd. Donate today and your contribution will have double the impact!

However you choose to get involved, we are incredibly grateful for your support. THANK YOU!

Josefine Jaynes announces her campaign for Wisconsin State Assembly. Go Josefine!

Community Healthcare Forum: Viroqua

This is the last forum of the series--don't miss it!

FREE and open to the public.

Wednesday, Oct. 16
6:30 – 8 p.m.
Viroqua VFW Hall,
751 S. Washington Ave., Viroqua

The fifth and last in our series of community forums on universal health care. Titled “Our Dysfunctional Healthcare System: Which Way Forward?”, the forum will feature a panel of three medical professionals: Dr. Mark Neumann, Emma Hood, RN, and Dr. Robert Jecklin.

The goal of this forum series is for the citizens of Vernon County to have open, non-partisan conversations about improving our current healthcare system.

Neumann, a recently retired pediatrician who practiced in Africa, Madison and La Crosse from 1980 until 2019, will discuss what comprehensive single-payer coverage could look like in the U.S.

Hood, who grew up and trained in nursing in Canada and practiced nursing in Canada and the U.S., will contrast the Canadian single-payer system to the U.S. system.

Jecklin, who teaches in the public health programs at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, will discuss the reasons to improve healthcare in the U.S. Prior to teaching, his work included public health in South Carolina, HMO managed care in Chicago, American Cancer Society, and efforts to improve primary care including Scenic Bluffs Community Health Centers in Cashton.
