Voting Rights and Fair Elections
Wisconsin once enjoyed a rich tradition of progressive, transparent government that was open and accessible to everyone. It’s time we support a basic tenet of democracy – the more people who vote, the better – not only to restore what has been rolled back in recent years, but to make big steps forward to ensure our state government serves the peoples' interests and that everybody has the ability to vote.
- End Voter ID. Voter ID requirements disenfranchise and discriminate against Wisconsinites. Voting should be easy, open, and free. Restrictive policies that inhibit anybody’s ability to cast a ballot are wrong.
- Automatic voter registration. Make voter registration is automatic when acquiring a state issued ID or upon turning 18.
- Expand early voting. Having only one day to vote is archaic and does not reflect the reality of voters' busy lives. Expanding the early voting period will give people more time to cast their ballot.
- Reinstate the Government Accountability Board. Eliminate the partisan elections and ethics commissions and return to an accountable and independent oversight.
- End gerrymandering. Voters choose their politicians, politicians shouldn’t choose their voters. We will end partisan gerrymandering by passing non-partisan redistricting reform.
