ward outperformed expected turnout by 4.8%. Some city of Milwaukee

According to the
Environment Victory Project's website in mid-2004, "With Madison and inner
Milwaukee expected to fight the northern reaches of the state to a draw,
the suburbs and exurbs of Milwaukee will decide this contest."

The website further states,
"The ten county cluster around Milwaukee and along the lake shore comprise
the Milwaukee media market. The Environmental Victory Project will canvass
in all 10 of those counties, knocking on close to 400,000 doors in the
summer and fall. From the inner suburbs in Milwaukee County itself, to
precincts of undecided voters from Kenosha to Sheboygan, we will spread
the word of the Bush Administration's radical anti-environmentalism."
According to an October 26
press release, in Wisconsin the Environmental Victory Project had 33 staff
and over 1000 volunteers, "LCV has knocked on over 250,000 doors in key
swing precincts in Milwaukee, Dane, Waukesha, Sheboygan and Racine counties,"
the release stated. And after the Election, organizer Dana Spindler
noted that, "By Election Day, LCV's Environmental Victory Project had mobilized
4,899 volunteer canvass shifts in more than 300 targeted swing precincts
in Southeast Wisconsin...ran major canvasses every weekend during the final
months of the campaign, and had knocked on the doors of more than 365,000
voters." "Besides ACT, which relied on paid canvassers, we ended
up as the single largest independent grassroots campaign in the state."
