Scrabble tiles spell the word News; a stack of newspapers is in the background

Disability Rights Wisconsin now has new Guardianship and Voting resources available!

New Publication: How to Keep the Right to Vote in a Guardianship Case

A new Guardianship and Voting publication, “How to Keep the Right to Vote in a Guardianship Case,” is now available as an accessible document.

The guide provides information about how to retain the right to vote when a court is deciding whether to appoint a guardian. The publication is also available on the Guardianship and Voting resource page in DRW’s Resource Center.

Guardianship and Voting – Resources for Attorneys

The new Guardianship and Voting – Resources for Attorneys page is now available in our Resource Center for resources on the topic of voting rights of proposed wards and wards for attorneys serving as guardian ad litem or advocate counsel in guardianship cases. These materials are focused on restoring voting rights that were removed in the initial guardianship proceeding as well as arguing that voting rights should not be removed when a guardian of the person is being appointed.

Competency, Guardianship, and Voting Brochures

Our Competency, Guardianship, and Voting informational brochures have been updated with new information regarding Wisconsin’s guardianship system.
