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.
