MADISON, Wis. — Jason Kander, President of Let America Vote, will join State Sen. Mark Miller and Madison voting rights advocates at a press conference on Sunday, June 25 at 11 a.m. outside the Madison Central Public Library to discuss the continuing fight to protect voting rights in Wisconsin and around the country.
Kander served in the military in Afghanistan and as a state legislator and Secretary of State in Missouri before running for the U.S. Senate in 2016. His 2016 campaign produced a popular ad showing him assembling a rifle blindfolded while discussing common sense sense gun control legislation.
He now heads Let America Vote, an organization dedicated to “… fight back against proposals across the country that make it harder for eligible voters to exercise their constitutional right to cast a ballot.”
Joining Mr. Kander will be State Sen. Mark Miller, an armed services veteran and ranking member of the state Senate Committee on Elections and Utilities.
The event is hosted by One Wisconsin Now, a leading advocate for voting rights in Wisconsin. Their partner organization, One Wisconsin Institute, was the lead plaintiff in federal lawsuit that resulted in a number of state laws restricting voting rights including limits on the times and locations of early voting and measures that made it harder for university students to vote.
