Legal Action Continues to Protect Wisconsin Voter Rights

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding the ruling by the District IV Court of Appeals on League of Women Voters v. Scott Walker, one of multiple cases challenging the constitutionality of a state voter identification requirement:

The intent of the Republican Voter Identification bill is clear: deny otherwise legal voters the ability to exercise their constitutional right to vote and know that their vote is counted.

The voter identification bill targets specific populations, seniors, students and people with disabilities, for disenfranchisement and remains locked in court challenges.

It is critical to remember that the real fraud related to voting in Wisconsin is politicians manipulating the laws for their own partisan, political benefit.”
