Candidate Questionnaire
Thank you for taking the time to participate in SE WI NORML's candidate questionnaire. Your responses will be used to give our members and the general public the ability to easily compare the details of each candidate's stance on cannabis law reform.

All of the questions on this form are in regards to Wisconsin state cannabis policy. All candidates running for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, state assembly, and state senate are invited and encouraged to answer this questionnaire.

Many of the questions can be answered with a simple yes/no, but we provide room for more nuanced responses if you feel necessary.

We will be making the answers to the survey available on our website and sharing them on our Facebook page and email list. The answers given will have a strong influence on any endorsements that our organization may make.

To ensure the integrity of our questionnaire and the validity of the responses to it, we will follow up with each campaign to ensure that the answers submitted are indeed the official stances of the candidate.

Again, thank you.
- SE WI NORML Board of Directors
