MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court of Wisconsin’s ruling enjoining Executive Order #74 suspending in-person voting for the April 7 election. The Supreme Court of Wisconsin’s ruling today allows the April 7 election to proceed against the advice of public health experts and with extreme risk to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There are few things we hold more sacred and that are more American than the right to vote. People have bled, fought, and died for the right to vote in this country. But tomorrow in Wisconsin, thousands will wake up and have to choose between exercising their right to vote and staying healthy and safe. In this time of historic crisis, it is a shame that two branches of government in this state chose to pass the buck instead of taking responsibility for the health and safety of the people we were elected to serve.”
