Wisconsin Voters Say: ‘No Way’ to Ending Same Day

Strong Support for Protecting Voting Rights in City of Milwaukee and Dane County

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding the vote on advisory referenda in the City of Milwaukee and Dane County in support of preserving Wisconsin’s same day voter registration law:

“Voters have spoken and their message is clear, they want their right to vote protected. By overwhelming margins they said ‘no way’ to ending same day voter registration.

“Voting is our civic duty and the time that everyone, rich or poor, young or old, has an equal say in the direction of our communities. Government ought to be about protecting and expanding our rights, not taking them away.

“The attempts in Wisconsin to make it harder for legal voters to vote and have their voices heard – from ending same day voter registration to rigging election districts and restricting early voting hours – are not just wrong, they are unpopular.”

In advance of Tuesday’s election, the One Wisconsin Institute released a report detailing the assault on voting rights by state Republicans and the myth of voting impropriety upon which their anti-voter rights policies are based.
