Saturday it was the opposition, Sunday those supporting the Madison School Referenda have their say.

A group known as "Madison Cares" took its message to the UW's Memorial Union Terrace, where they were joined by the UW Teaching Assistants Association, and others who support a "YES" ballot for Tuesday's upcoming vote.

Members of Madison Cares say they are not concerned the recent misprinted ballots will ultimately affect the vote, adding their feeling that high voter turnout will work in their favor and offset any potential problems with absentee ballots.

"We have to feel confident. I, personally, have children in the schools—I have to feel confident because I believe in Madison schools and I believe the Madison metropolitan area does, too—so, yes, we're feeling very confident," says Beth Zurbuchen from "Madison Cares."

Local reggae group Natty Nation performed during Sunday's rally.

The referendum vote is scheduled to take place this Tuesday, May 24th.
