Beyond the Ballot


With “Beyond the Ballot,” WPR is turning our traditional reporting process on its head by asking hundreds of people what they think is important to cover this election season. Our staff has fanned out across Wisconsin, asking people questions and having real conversations about politics in 2018. The centerpiece of the project is a website featuring photography and stories. We are also collecting detailed demographic data on virtually everyone we interview, which helps our ongoing effort to diversify our sourcing.
