Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, released the following statement on Governor Evers veto of six election-related bills backed by Wisconsin Republicans designed to infringe upon Wisconsinites’ freedom to cast a ballot in our democracy:

“Governor Evers has taken action to protect democracy and our freedom to vote by vetoing a set of Republican-sponsored bills designed to infringe upon a voter’s right to cast a ballot. No matter our zip code or what party we support, we can all agree that voters should pick their leaders, leaders shouldn’t pick their voters. By vetoing bills designed to disenfranchise voters, Governor Evers has taken a stand to protect free and fair elections, the bedrock upon which our American democracy stands.”
