Bus tour encourages youth to vote

National bus tour stops in Wisconsin

Democrats began a month-long bus tour Thursday to “get out the vote.”

The bus tour began in La Crosse before travelling to Madison in the afternoon and Janesville in the evening.  The tour targets students to make sure they vote in the upcoming presidential election.

Democratic party leaders said Wisconsin always does well to gather the youth vote.

“Wisconsin has historically had the highest number of young voter turnout in the country,” said Mike Tate from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.  “It’s primarily because we take students seriously here and because we have great voting laws.”

The national bus tour wraps up its Wisconsin leg tomorrow in Milwaukee.
