I am so thankful you all came out to support me in my re-election as Dane County Voting peopleDistrict Attorney. Voting is a way to make your voice heard. It is a way to register your opinion on how you think the government should operate. I would like to encourage you all, if you haven’t already voted early, to cast your ballot.

I hope you will join me in voting for the many great Democrats we have on the ballot.

Together, we will do great things.
Ismael Ozanne


Why Vote?

Vote because every election matters. Vote because the choices you will make matter. Vote because elections aren’t simply about your representatives in Washington or who is president. Who you choose this November to lead your local and state governments — whether as your governor, mayor, city council member, or your state senator — will have a serious impact on the life of your community. When we vote for our state and local officials, we make choices that will have very direct and concrete effects on our daily lives.
