MILWAUKEE — All Voting is Local, the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, and the ACLU of Wisconsin today released Ballots for All: Ensuring Eligible Wisconsinites in Jail Have Equal Access to Voting — an update to the July 2020 report, Ballots for All: Ensuring Eligible Wisconsin Voters in Jail Have Equal Access to Voting. The new report found that many jail administrators have taken small, but important, steps to increase ballot access for individuals in their care. However, troubling voting barriers persist for the approximately 13,000 people incarcerated in Wisconsin’s jails at any given time.
MILWAUKEE — All Voting is Local, in partnership with the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition and the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, will host a telephone press briefing at 1 p.m. CT on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, to discuss findings from their latest report entitled “Getting There is Half the Battle: Wisconsin’s Photo ID Law, Access to DMV Services, and the Fight for Our Freedom to Vote.”
MILWAUKEE - All Voting is Local Wisconsin State Director Shauntay Nelson issued the following statement on the need for the State of Wisconsin’s Department of Transportation (DOT) to expand DMV services to provide critical support to voters who need access to a state-issued driver’s license or photo ID with which they can vote.
MILWAUKEE-All Voting is Local Wisconsin and 28 voting rights groups called on Gov. Tony Evers to enforce his own Executive Order and compel the state’s Department of Transportation (DOT) to expand access to photo ID by increasing locations and hours where voters can obtain the identification necessary to cast a ballot. The groups noted that Wisconsin has one of the most restrictive voter ID laws in the nation which creates needless and discriminatory barriers to the ballot.
