BALTIMORE, MD — The Supreme Court recently blocked the state from implementing a new restrictive voter ID law, overturning the lower court’s decision until it can be reviewed at a full trial after the November election. Up to 10 percent of Wisconsin voters, especially those from communities of color, could have been disenfranchised. Nearly 300,000 registered voters, who do not have the IDs that would have been required under the new law, can  now breathe a sigh of relief knowing they will not face new voting restrictions in the upcoming election.

From Lillie B. Wilson, President of the NAACP Wisconsin State Conference:

“We are just elated at this decision. By any means possible they are trying to keep us from the polls. It is nice to know the courts are still looking at things in a good way. We fought and died for the right to vote, and we will continue to fight to retain that right.”
