Republicans are making a last-ditch effort to grab and consolidate power before Governor-elect Tony Evers takes office in January. Yet again, Republicans are putting politics ahead of the will of the people.  

Here’s what the proposed bills would do: 

LIMIT EARLY VOTING 

These bills take aim at early voting. This fall, many Wisconsinites were able to cast their ballots more than 6 weeks early. Republican lawmakers want to reduce that to as few as 2 weeks. A proposal like this makes voting more difficult.  

REDUCE VOTER TURNOUT 

The bills contain a plan to move the 2020 presidential primary to March – meaning Wisconsin will have  3  separate elections in  3  months! County clerks who administer elections agree this will cause confusion and decrease  voter turnout.   

REMOVE POWER FROM YOUR ELECTED LEADERS 

Republicans don't just want to make it harder to vote next time, they want to cancel out the votes you cast in November. These proposals take power away from Governor-elect Tony Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul, even though the voters chose them and their plans to expand health care and opportunity across Wisconsin. With these changes, Republicans are making it harder for our elected leaders to fight for us and enact the policies we voted for in November.  

Here’s what YOU can do RIGHT NOW to stop them: 

Call your legislators! Tell them they need to stop playing politics and listen to Wisconsin voters. Urge them to VOTE NO on the special session bills. You can find your representatives here: http://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov
