    REPUBLICAN PARTY WEBSITE The GOP platform will restore the American dream through economic growth, protecting constitutional freedoms, and ensuring election integrity. CHAIRPERSON MICHAEL WHATLEY The Republican Party, often called the GOP (short for “Grand Old Party”) is one of two major political parties in the United States. Founded in 1854 as a coalition opposing the extension of slavery into Western territories, the Republican Party fought to protect the rights of African Americans after the Civil War. Today’s GOP is generally socially conservative, and favors smaller government, less regulation, lower taxes and less federal intervention in the economy. Republican Presidents (19): Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), Ulysses S. Grant (1822-1885), Rutherford B. Hayes (1822-1893), James A. Garfield (1831-1881), Chester A. Arthur (1829-1886), Benjamin Harrison (1833-1901), William McKinley (1843-1901), Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), William Howard Taft (1857-1930), Warren G. Harding (1865-1923), Calvin, Coolidge (1872-1933), Herbert Hoover (1874-1964), Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890-1969), Richard Nixon (1913-1994), Gerald Ford (1913-2006), Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), George H. W. Bush (1924-2018), George W. Bush (bom 1946), Donald Trump (born 1946) DEMOCRATIC PARTY WEBSITE We’re fighting for a brighter, more equal future: rolling up our sleeves and organizing everywhere to build a better America for all. CHAIRPERSON JAIME HARRISON The Democratic Party is one of the two major political parties in the United States, and the nation’s oldest existing political party. After the Civil War, the party dominated in the South due to its opposition to civil and political rights for African Americans. After a major shift in the 20th century, today’s Democrats are known for their association with a strong federal government and support for minority, women’s and labor rights, environmental protection and progressive reforms. Democratic Presidents (16): Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), Martin Van Buren (1782-1862), James K. Polk (1795-1849), Franklin Pierce (1804-1869), James Buchanan (1791-1868), Andrew Johnson (1808-1875), Grover Cleveland (1837-1908), Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924), Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945), Harry S. Truman (1884-1972), John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973), Jimmy Carter (born 1924), Bill Clinton (born 1946), Barack Obama (born 1961), Joe Biden (born 1942) ​ Proposed and Revised Election Rules (1846 - 1848) In 1846, as Wisconsin prepared for statehood, voting rules expanded to include white male citizens above 21 who had lived in the territory for six months. The draft constitution of 1846 proposed allowing African Americans to vote, but this was rejected by voters. Revised state constitution in 1848 limited voting to white male citizens aged 21 or older, with residency requirements. ​ ​ 1960 - 1999 Democrats gained momentum in the 1960s, winning key elections and solidifying their presence in the state. Wisconsin experienced fluctuations, leaning towards Republicans in some presidential elections but voting Democrat in others. The 1980s saw Democrats dominate presidential elections in Wisconsin, beginning a streak lasting until 2012. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Early and Absentee Voting Early voting and absentee voting are accessible options for Wisconsin voters, allowing participation before Election Day. The state permits no-excuse absentee voting, enabling voters to request mail-in ballots without providing a reason. ​ Gerrymandering and Redistricting ​ Districts for congressional and state legislative seats are drawn by the state legislature, subject to gubernatorial approval or judicial intervention. Gerrymandering has been a contentious issue, impacting political representation and electoral outcomes in Wisconsin. ​ ​ ​ Partisan Polarization ​ Partisan divisions and power struggles have shaped Wisconsin's electoral landscape, leading to contentious policy debates and legal battles. Gerrymandering and political maneuvering have exacerbated tensions, impacting democratic governance and representation. EARLY VOTING HISTORY ​ The First Elections (1820s - 1830s) Voting in Wisconsin began in the 1820s, with the first known vote recorded in Green Bay in 1825. Initially, voting rights were limited to white male citizens above the age of 21 and inhabitants of the territory. The legislative assembly of 1838 regulated general elections, requiring voters to be free white male citizens or naturalized foreigners with six months' residence in the territory. Suffrage Expansion (1866 - 1919) African Americans gained the right to vote in Wisconsin in 1866, following Ezekiel Gillespie's legal challenge. Women's suffrage was achieved with the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1919. Wisconsin played a pivotal role in expanding suffrage rights, often leading its peers in the Midwest and nationally. POLITICAL SHIFTS AND TRENDS Pre - 1960s Wisconsin was predominantly Republican throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Exceptions included Democratic victories in select presidential elections, notably for Franklin D. Roosevelt. The 1960s marked a significant shift towards Democrats in Wisconsin politics. ​ 21st Century Wisconsin became a swing state in presidential elections, with narrow margins determining outcomes. Republicans made significant gains in the early 2000s, controlling key offices and the state legislature. The state's political status remained closely contested, evident in recent elections and partisan battles. VOTING SYSTEM PRACTICES Voter Registration and ID Laws Wisconsin residents can register to vote online, by mail, or in person, with same-day registration available. Voter ID laws require presentation of acceptable forms of identification, including driver's licenses and passports. Electioneering and Voting Rights Electioneering is prohibited within 100 feet of polling locations, ensuring a fair voting environment. Convicted felons regain voting rights upon completing their sentences, promoting reintegration into civic life. CHALLENGES AND CONTROVERSIES Voter Access and Equity Wisconsin has faced challenges in maintaining voter access, including restrictive voter ID laws and changes to voting procedures. Controversies over ballot boxes, voter registration, and electioneering have highlighted the need for equitable voting practices. Wisconsin's voting history is a reflection of its evolving political landscape and the ongoing struggle for equal rights and representation. Since the 1820s, the state has seen significant changes in voting laws, demographics, and political affiliations. Understanding Wisconsin's voting history and systems is essential for comprehending its political dynamics and the challenges it faces in ensuring fair and accessible elections. Wisconsin's voting history and systems reflect its journey towards inclusive democracy and the ongoing quest for fair and accessible elections. From early suffrage movements to modern-day challenges, the state has navigated political shifts, legal reforms, and social movements to uphold the principles of representative governance. Understanding Wisconsin's electoral dynamics is crucial for addressing current issues, promoting voter participation, and safeguarding democratic principles for future generations.
