How the Scorecard Works
The Conservation Scorecard is our eyes on the Capitol. We use it to grade how Gov. Evers and the legislature did – or didn’t – prioritize conservation issues during the legislative session. Most importantly, it’s your resource for voting in the upcoming August 9 primary and November 8 general election.
In the 2021-22 Conservation Scorecard, you'll find the story of the session, bill descriptions of the most important conservation and democracy bills, and charts that show the scores of Gov. Evers and each legislator.
You can find more details of each bill listed on the Vote Tracker feature on our website.
While it is legislators who ultimately cast the votes that determine Wisconsin’s conservation policies – the real power lies in the hands of voters like you. You determine who makes those decisions. Use this publication and the Vote Tracker to help inform your votes and your efforts as a conservation voter.
