National Public Radio came to Wisconsin to talk with voters with disabilities about how the Waukesha Circuit Court ruling banning ballot return assistance threatens their voting rights. In this story, voters, DRW and Law Forward speak candidly about how these new restrictions may limit the voting rights of many disabled Wisconsinites.
As a party to the current litigation on this issue, 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.
For more information, see DRW’s Our Voices, Our Votes, featuring statements from people with disabilities and family members regarding how these new restrictions limit their voting rights.
