MADISON, Wis. — Following today’s Wisconsin Supreme Court rulings, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“Today’s ruling affirms a basic principle: a democracy, we should make it easier for eligible voters to cast a ballot—not impose barriers based on conspiracy theories. By restoring access to safe and secure ballot drop boxes, the Court has ensured voters in communities across Wisconsin—cities big and small, in red areas and blue areas—are able to exercise their right to vote in a way that works for them. Also today, the Court ruled in a decisive 6-1 opinion to strip Republican politicians in Madison of their ability to anonymously veto state land stewardship projects, ensuring that already-approved funding can be put to work preserving public lands for future generations without interference from wealthy special interests. 

“Today’s rulings are a victory for Wisconsin’s constitution and our democracy, and should serve as a notice to Republican politicians in Madison—who have schemed for more than a decade to undermine the basic functions of our government—that the era of government sabotage is over.”
