MILWAUKEE--In 2011, Wisconsin lawmakers passed one of the most restrictive voter ID laws in the nation, but, since then, haven’t taken meaningful steps to educate voters on how to comply with the law.

Democracy is based on the notion that the people should govern themselves — that the people have a voice. When we don’t vote, we lose that voice. In doing so, we do ourselves, and our community a disservice. And this disservice will not be short-lived. The reverberations of the 2018 election will be felt far into the future. If we don’t vote, we won’t have a say in that future.
