WISCONSIN - The number of organ donors in Wisconsin increased since re-launching the state's donor registry in 2010.
Five years ago, Wisconsin didn't have any registered organ donors while it transitioned to a new system. The system included legal consent for lifesaving procedures.
Today, about 2.6 million people are registered as organ, eye, and tissue donors in the state. One report says there are still two million eligible residents who haven't signed up.
Wisconsin ranks slightly above average in the percentage of residents on its registry. Advocates hope to get the state closer to 75 percent of its residents on the registry list.
