Progressive Turnout Project on WI Election: Republicans and SCOTUS Put Anti-Voter Agenda Before Their Constitutional Duty

“Today is a dark day for our democracy. Republicans can’t win unless they suppress the vote, so of course they refused to extend vote-by-mail deadlines when the global pandemic shuttered all but a handful of polling places. Republicans don’t care about their constitutional duty or your right to vote — not if it means that they benefit politically. 

“Let’s be absolutely clear: based on the present circumstances, the Wisconsin primary is not a legitimate election. 

“Congressional Democrats must refuse to pass any “Phase 4” stimulus package that doesn’t include fully funded and universal vote-by-mail. Roberts’ kangaroo court will overturn any ad-hoc state efforts. We need federal action now to stop this electoral chaos, protect American voters, and preserve our democracy.” Alex Morgan, Executive Director, Progressive Turnout Project
