Voters in Eau Claire and La Crosse Counties will head to the polls this spring to show their support for protecting Wisconsin’s water. The spring Election Day is on Tuesday, April 5.

Ballots will include the advisory referendum question: “Should the State of Wisconsin establish a right to clean water to protect human health, the environment, and the diverse cultural and natural heritage of Wisconsin?” A YES vote means voters agree with our right to clean water.
