Burlington, VT –  Democracy for America (DFA) has intensified its ground game to Get Out The Vote (GOTV) in Wisconsin's recall efforts - by committing to knock on 5,000 doors a day and calling over 8,000 households a day till June 5.

Working alongside the We Are Wisconsin coalition, DFA's 30,000 members continue to be a valuable asset to the coalition and enhance GOTV efforts.  DFA has previously committed to knocking on 80,000 doors and making over 100,000 calls to recall Gov. Scott Walker. DFA is known for its strength on the ground and will focus its efforts on turning out voters in Dane County – the key to recalling Gov. Walker.

“For working families in Wisconsin, it’s now or never,” said Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America.  “Democracy for America and our members continue to organize and get out the vote in Wisconsin. Gov. Scott Walker’s policies attack the very core of what we value – a hard day’s work should earn a livable wage. Let me make this perfectly clear, Democrats need to get out and support working families on June 5th.” 
In the 15 month long campaign Democracy for America has already:

Knocked on 123,000 doors to identify Wisconsin voters who support the recall efforts; Made over 382,000 phone calls in over 36 counties across the state; and Over 2500 DFA members have volunteered their time to help in the recall efforts.
“Democrats, progressives, independents and anyone who believes in the American Dream must get out and recall Gov. Walker,” Jim Dean continued.

“This recall effort in Wisconsin is an indicator of whether we will allow our elected officials to continue to balance the budget on the backs of working people.   While Gov. Walker and his GOP cronies in the State House are only concerned about securing a fat check from big business and Super PACs, Democracy for America is giving a voice to those who need it – all working families in the state.”
Democracy for America, led by its 30,000 members in Wisconsin, has been on the ground fighting back and protecting working families for the past 15 months.  DFA organizers are leading three major get out the vote efforts in Racine, Madison and Eau Claire.
