Rundown on Vote Changes

Thank you to all 34 representatives who opposed the ban. We thank every one of you, especially those of you who rose to speak against it.

We count eight new "No" votes. This confirms that every day we talk to fair and independent-minded people about the ban, we gain votes. Congratulations to all of you who worked so hard over the past two years to make these votes change.

The following representatives courageously switched their votes after thinking carefully about the far-reaching consequences of the ban. Please thank them.

Rep. John Steinbrink - email
Rep. Barbara Gronemus - email
Rep. Dave Cullen - email
Rep. Louis Molepske - email

And thank your own representative too! You can look him or her up here.

Four new representatives voted "No." They replaced supporters of the ban in the last election:
Rep. Donna Seidel, Rep. Jason Fields, Rep. Mike Sheridan, and Rep. Tom Nelson.

Would it be possible to get a map on this blog or the AW site showing the different districts of the state and how they voted?

I'd find it interesting to see how much of the state, geographically, went each way. I also think it would be helpful for organizing, but also for those of us who are choosing where to spend vacation dollars, relocating, etc.

I'm so saddened, and angry, after today. I can't believe my state is actually going through with discrimination. To think we're willingly choosing to vote away freedom...it's all too unbelievable.

Between this ban on marriage and the abortion debate developments this week, I feel like the battleground is now within my own country.

I agree with Jay G. That a map of how the districts voted would be useful.

I'd like to at least see a complete list of the representatives who voted no, and the ones who voted yes.

Last vote was 68-27 ... This time we've got 34 no's, with 8 flips or new.

was there a no vote that switched to yes, or a new rep replacing a no vote?

There were a couple "No" seats that were replaced with "Yes" representatives. Former Rep. Larry Balow (D-Eau Claire) voted no in 2004 and has been replaced by Rep. Terry Moulton (R) who voted yes. Also, former Rep. Joe Plouff (D-Menomonie) voted no and was replaced by Rep. Andy Lamb (R) who voted yes.
