On April 13th, the Wisconsin Supreme Court heard arguments in Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, the lawsuit challenging ballot return assistance and drop boxes. The Court will decide whether Wisconsin law will protect voters’ ability to return their absentee ballots. It will impact the voting rights of thousands of Wisconsinites with disabilities.
To elevate the voices of voters with disabilities, Disability Rights Wisconsin released “Our Voices, Our Votes”. This document features statements from people with disabilities and family members regarding how these new restrictions limit their voting rights. DRW thanks these voters for giving permission for their statements to be shared.
- An accessible version of “Our Voices, Our Votes” is now available here.
