MILWAUKEE – In response to the decision by the Green Bay City Council to expand the number of early voting sites in the city from one to three, All Voting is Local Wisconsin State Director Sam Liebert released the following statement:

“At a time when lawmakers and local officials across the country are creating intentional barriers to voting, the Green Bay City Council has done the right thing by breaking down some of those unnecessary roadblocks to polling sites. Early voting gives people in Green Bay and beyond the option to conveniently cast their ballot before election day.

“Adding two more early voting sites in the city before the general election is a positive for thousands of Green Bay voters who may otherwise not have had a chance to vote. Working parents, people with disabilities, or those relying on public transportation are just a few groups now more likely to vote if they have early voting sites closer to their homes. Voters have busy lives, and we need more local-level decisions like these that don’t require them to jump through hoops to make their voices heard during elections.”
