Rock the Vote Don't Block the Vote

WISCONSIN: STOP THE VOTER ID BILL NOW

In the midst of the budget standoff, the state Senate is moving forward with photo ID legislation that would disenfranchise thousands of Wisconsin voters. Voting rights aren't a game. Fundamental rights shouldn't be used as leverage in political showdown.

Tell your legislators to oppose Senate Bill 6. What would Senate Bill 6 do? It would require all voters to show photo identification every time they vote. Seems reasonable, right? Not exactly.

There are tens of thousands of current Wisconsin voters without a photo ID. According to a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee study, 36 percent of young people, including more than 70 percent of African-Americans ages 18 to 24, do not have a driver’s license. An estimated 23 percent of people ages 65 and older do not have a Wisconsin driver’s license or other photo ID. Under this bill, student IDs, even those issued by a state university, wouldn't be accepted at the polls.

Don't let fundamental, constitutional rights get taken way. Use the form below to contact your state senator and representative.
