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
Progressive Turnout Project is a grassroots-funded political action committee with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. PTP designs, tests, and executes specialized voter-turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive elections across the country. In 2020, the organization will invest $52.5 million to knock on over 10.1 million doors and get out the vote in 17 presidential and Senate battleground states.
