Apparently, young voters are very important in Wisconsin because a group is spending millions to get them.

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, so I would always hear about cheating during elections.

When a candidate won I remember people saying, "How many dead people voted for them?"

I think my favorite motto was "Vote early and often."

For the upcoming election, it sounds like Wisconsin has a little bit of a Chicago feel. Well, at least this isn't illegal.

According to,

"A group that focuses on mobilizing young voters says it is spending $2.5 million in Wisconsin as part of an effort to defeat Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Gov. Scott Walker and re-elect Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin."

They are using the money on young voters to get them registered, interested in the candidates, and to actually come out to vote.

I do think it's a great idea to get young voters involved in the process.

I just don't like the idea of the group pushing their agenda on them. They should make their own decisions.

Please make sure you get out and vote.
