Suamico had 43 percent turnout, which led the Gold Division for larger municipalities.

It's the third time each community has won the voter challenge.

Project VOTE member Scott Stein reminds the community how important voting is.

"Lets all hope and work hard to increase the voter turn out for these elections that are coming up and remember your vote is your voice. Be heard on election day," Stein said.

Project VOTE, a nonpartisan volunteer organization, was founded in 2002. Its mission is to increase informed voter turnout in Brown County.
