voter-idGAB requests $250,000 from Joint Finance Committee To Educate Voters.


MADISON - During the Government Accountability Board (GAB) meeting this week, members voted 4-2 to seek $250,000 from the Joint Committee on Finance to educate voters about Republicans' unnecessary photo ID law. 

Gov. Walker and Republicans approved the law in 2011 to require certain forms of photo identification to be shown at the polls to vote, even though in-person voter fraud has proven to be virtually non-existent in Wisconsin. [1] It officially became the law this year for the February 16 spring primary and the April 5 presidential primary election. 

walker-clapsWisconsin failed to appropriate adequate funds to educate the public ahead of the April 5 elections, and in turn, voters in some areas waited up to three hours to cast a ballot, were confused about the necessary requirements to cast a ballot and were even turned away due to misinformation on the part of poll workers. On election night, Congressman Glenn Grothman revealed he believed that photo ID requirements gave Republicans an edge heading into the fall election. [2]

"Democrats in Wisconsin, and across the nation, believe the right to vote is sacred, and the public shouldn't have to jump hurdles just to have their voices heard," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Kory Kozloski said on Thursday. "If photo ID is going to be the law of the land during the current election cycle, then the state has an obligation to do all it can to educate the public and ensure that everyone who is eligible to cast a ballot will be able to do so."
