Voter Suppression Law Halted; Walker, GOP Have Opportunity to Make Things Right

The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate on news that Scott Walker's voter suppression law has been halted by the Court.

"Today's action that halts the implementation of flawed legislation that makes it harder for students, seniors and minorities to exercise their right to vote is a victory for all Wisconsinites. Now that the judiciary has correctly recognized that this restrictive bill could cause irreparable harm to Wisconsinites and our traditions of excellent voter participation, Scott Walker and his Republican Party have the opportunity to make things right. Wisconsin law should focus on increasing voter participation, not diminishing it."
