Senator Erpenbach Calls for Action to Keep Voters Safe

West Point – Senator Jon Erpenbach released the following statement regarding the April Spring Election:

“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 public health crisis, I have heard from poll workers, clerks and local leaders from around my district who are looking for ways to make it as safe as possible for voters to exercise their right to vote.  Unfortunately, many of these changes require the Legislature to take action to adjust current statute and cannot be done by Executive Order.  Therefore, I am calling on the Republican Majority Leaders to work with Democrats and those tasked with running our elections to find solutions that will make it easier to limit in-person contact and provide the flexibility needed to make that happen as soon as possible. The April 7 election is just around the corner and we need action now.”
