Wisconsin Officials Vehemently Defend Discriminatory Voting Law

Wisconsin Voter ID Law Abridges the Voting Rights of Communities of Color

 WASHINGTON – The national civil rights group Advancement Project today challenged Wisconsin officials for seeking permission to rush implementation of a state law that erects barriers to the ballot box for seniors and communities of color. Gov. Scott Walker and state officials took exception to a federal judge’s ruling that declared Wisconsin’s voter ID law an unconstitutional violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Advancement Project, along with Co-counsel Arnold & Porter, today filed a brief excoriating the state for working to enshrine discrimination in state law. Our brief further demonstrated that the State’s arguments were “an improper caricature of this Court’s decision and the massive trial record supporting the Court’s factual and legal determinations.”
