Disabled Voters Speak Out on Absentee Ballot Return Assistance Prohibition

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

The Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling on absentee ballot return assistance will disenfranchise some voters with disabilities. This story and a video in today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel feature Wisconsin voters who share how this ruling will restrict their right to vote. Thanks to each of the voters for shining a light on how this ruling will limit their voting rights.

As a party to the litigation, DRW remains optimistic that when the Wisconsin Supreme Court fully considers the merits and the rights of voters with disabilities, it will rule in support of these longstanding practices for absentee ballot return assistance.
