Details about the referendums appearing on ballots April 2nd:

Proposed Constitutional Amendments

(These questions will be on ALL ballots)

Question 1: Use of private funds in election administration. Shall section 7 (1) of article III of the constitution be created to provide that private donations and grants may not be applied for, accepted, expended, or used in connection with the conduct of any primary, election, or referendum?

VOTE NO

Question 2: Election officials. Shall section 7 (2) of article III of the constitution be created to provide that only election officials designated by law may perform tasks in the conduct of primaries, elections, and referendums?

VOTE NO

The position of the Brown County Democrats is that elections need to be fully funded.

These proposed constitutional amendments put our elections at risk.

VOTE YES

Operational Referendum for the Luxemburg-Casco School District

Click Here For More Information: https://www.luxcasco.k12.wi.us/district/board-of-education/operational-referendum-24-27

VOTE YES

The position of the Brown County Democrats is that the lack of reform to state funding formulas model and revenue caps puts school districts statewide at risk. Without the successful passage of an operating referendum, these districts will face difficulties in preserving existing programs and services. Should the operational referendum fail, it will inevitably lead to reductions in staff and program offerings.
