MADISON – In a move decried by non-partisan election watchdog groups, Senate Republicans passed SB 295 which will eliminate Special Registration Deputies and make it nearly impossible to conduct voter registration drives in Wisconsin. In response, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Our democracy is strongest when everyone is allowed to participate and voice their opinions. While Republicans want to create more barriers and limit the freedom to vote, I believe that all citizens who are qualified to vote should have a clear and fundamental right to cast a ballot. Rather than needlessly eliminating Special Registration Deputies and blocking voter registration drives, we should be empowering Wisconsin citizens and encouraging greater voter participation.”
