Very important information from Our Common Good on a reblog of this link. I’ve inserted some extra links and info:

August 16th is Election Day for: Jim Holperin (Senate District 12) and Bob Wirch (Senate District 22) (These are the two Democratic senators who were recalled)

If you are in Wisconsin, you can look up your voter registration and polling place location here.

No matter where you live, you can join this effort:

Background info on the recalls here. Currently, the Koch brothers and Tea Party Nation are dumping money and out-of-state organizers into Wisconsin. Judson Phillips, head of Tea Party Nation, is in Wisconsin claiming the unions/the left agenda "has killed billions of people" and is comparing Wisconsin protesters to Nazi storm troopers.

They’re against the ropes. Let’s go for the knockout.
