A toast to @repvos, U.S. Supreme Court and @realdonaldtrump: Naked partisanship is one thing, but putting people's lives in danger to do it as another. It backfired big time. Thanks! byyyyyyyyyyye — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) April 14, 2020

The Republican party is a minority party in this country, and it knows it can only continue to hold power by preventing people from voting. Their latest maneuver is to terrorize the people of Wisconsin by raising the stakes so that casting a vote could cost voters their lives. https://t.co/FNcXhCh0tS — Walter Shaub (@waltshaub) April…
"Part of how voter suppression works is you intimidate people into not even trying to vote. So our message is, no matter what the Republicans do, show up." -Ben Wikler, chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin pic.twitter.com/1COt0XcC6Y — Tomthunkit™ (@TomthunkitsMind) January 27, 2020
Nonpartisan redistricting reform was also included in the Governor’s budget. We need to look toward the future. Voters should choose their elected officials, not the other way around. This proposal is supported by a wide margin of citizens. It was no wonder the Governor included it in the people’s budget.For years, Republicans have stripped away essential voters’ rights in Wisconsin. The Governor’s inclusion of automatic voter registration is a good first step for reversing the undemocratic policies of the last 8 years and starting a new chapter of voter rights expansion in Wisconsin.
