Gear up for Mary Burke!
Elections matter. In America, we solve problems with more democracy, not less.
In order to successfully vote, you need to know the rules of the road. The requirements for voting vary from state to state – so make sure you read your state’s guidelines section so that you know what it takes to vote.
You’re going to need to share some basic information about yourself (like your name and where you live). You may also need a printer, some stamps and an envelope, so that you can mail your completed voter registration application to the appropriate state office.
These Republican governors seem to have a little something in common…
About six years ago, Mary Burke sat down with a teacher from East High School in Madison and created a new educational program called AVID/TOPS, designed to narrow the achievement gap for low income students and better prepare them for college. Burke helped build that program to scale, so what started in one Madison high school is now offered across all four Madison high schools.
Students enrolled in AVID/TOPS take an elective course that focuses on things like study skills, time management, and offers access to internships that help students get real world experience even before they get to college.
AVID/TOPS is a partnership between Madison Schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Madison, which is independently assessed each year by the University of Wisconsin. Over 90% of students enrolled in the program go on to two or four year college, the vast majority of whom are the first in their family to attend college.
