Voting Rights Under Assault

votingRights2.jpgDon't allow Walker to restrict voting rights.
Start fighting back!

Governor Walker and his Republican cronies have decided to rig Wisconsin's elections to improve their chances of holding on to power in the fall 2014 elections. How? By severely curtailing early voting. The latest legislation eliminates all weekend voting and stipulates that early voting can take place only between the hours of 8 AM and 7 PM. Such restrictions simply mean that for urban residents in particular, it will be much harder to get to the one municipal office where they can vote during the days and hours when it will be open.

The bottom line: voters in large urban areas like Milwaukee and Madison will either be prevented from voting early or will be discouraged from voting at all. The very same people who are likely to find it difficult to vote on election day will now find it difficult to vote, period.
