MADISON — Today, the Wisconsin Supreme Court prohibited the use of ballot drop boxes. Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement:
“Today’s ruling is another step in the Republican Party’s plan to strip every American of their fundamental rights – from our right to choose to our right to vote. Ron Johnson, his Republican colleagues, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court are looking voters in the eye and telling every single one of them their voices don’t matter.
“It has never been more important that we elect leaders who are accountable to the people and who will go to the mat to protect our most sacred constitutional right. In the Senate, I’ll fight to expand access to the ballot box and ensure every Wisconsinite’s voice is heard.”
