It's election day and WPR provides candidate profiles, debate archives and other general information.

Also, there's a referendum on corporate personhood and campaign finance.
City of Madison referendum –

RESOLVED, the City of Madison, Wisconsin, calls for reclaiming democracy from the corrupting effects of undue corporate influence by amending the United States Constitution to establish that:

1. Only human beings, not corporations, are entitled to constitutional rights, and

2. Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.

Dane County referendum –

Should the United States Constitution be amended to establish that regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting freedom of speech, and that only human beings, not corporations, are entitled to constitutional rights?

I agree. I think it's ridiculous that corporations have speech protected but you can't hold them accountable for anything else as if a person.
