Statement: Decision on Photo ID Requirement for Absentee Voters
March 31, 2020
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement following the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s unanimous ruling involving the Dane County Clerk’s “erroneous advice” on absentee ballots for the April 7 election.
“This decision is a victory for fair elections. A liberal Dane County activist clerk, who tried to break the law, had his hand slapped by a unanimous Supreme Court. It was completely inappropriate that the Dane County clerk was trying to use the pandemic for political gain. I think we all should be thankful a unanimous court stepped in and put an end to these illegal communications.”
