Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera:

“The recent Supreme Court decision to side with the Wisconsin GOP to not have absentee votes counted that arrive after November 3rd — despite delays in the postal service during a pandemic — is nothing short of willful voter suppression.  To ensure that your vote is counted in this historic election, Voces de la Frontera is encouraging people to vote early. If you have your ballot drop it off at a ballot box.  In Milwaukee, you can register in person when you vote until this Friday during the early voting period. Otherwise you can register in person on Tuesday, November 3.  Too much is at stake, especially for Black and Brown communities, to not ensure that our votes are counted.  Voces’ members are mobilizing to turn out the vote and stepping up to support election protection efforts to meet the challenge.”

Anna Dvorak, the VDLF Election Protections Coordinator:

“Voces is going to continue to fight to make sure every voter is able to safely and confidently exercise their right to vote by having a team of volunteer election observers at key polling sites in Milwaukee, Racine, Waukesha, Madison, and Green Bay. While these recent attacks on our democracy are concerning, we are seeing unprecedented enthusiasm from our community to vote and our membership is stepping up to the challenge to ensure election integrity and that every vote is counted.”
