Governor Evers’ Decision to Protect Both Public Safety and the Integrity of Our Election


“I support Governor Evers’ decision to suspend in-person voting until June 9th.  No person should have to risk their life to exercise their right to vote.


“Amid the dire warnings put forth by the Surgeon General and the White House’s own experts, the next two weeks are critical to getting through this pandemic in a way that reduces loss of life.  It is perhaps the most dangerous time so far during the pandemic.


“While maintaining our democracy is critical, suspending in-person voting until it will be safe to do protects both our people and our system of government.


“I urge my colleagues to put aside partisan politics and support the Governor in this effort.”
