Wisconsin Democrats on RNC’s Early Voting Announcement

MADISON, Wis. — In response to today’s announcement from the Republican National Committee that Wisconsin will be the first state included in its new “Bank Your Vote” early voting initiative, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Oslund issued the following statement:

“Wisconsin Republicans spent years—and millions of taxpayer dollars—casting doubt on the 2020 election and undermining safe and accessible forms of early voting, only to now reverse course in the wake of multiple embarrassing statewide defeats. The GOP eagerly backed litigation that made it nearly impossible for disabled Wisconsinites to cast ballots, waged war on secure ballot drop boxes that benefitted voters in communities across the state, and stymied safe early voting efforts in the face of a global pandemic. This about-face to now embrace early voting is a hypocritical and deeply cynical ploy that is doomed to fail thanks to the years Republican politicians like Donald Trump, Robin Vos, and Brian Schimming have spent lying to their own voters about the 2020 election.”
