Statement of Jay Heck of Common Cause in Wisconsin on Governor's Executive Order to Postpone April 7th Election

Contact: Jay Heck, Executive Director, CC/WI | 608-512-9363

For Immediate Release: Monday - April 6, 2020

Common Cause in Wisconsin, the state's largest non-partisan citizens voting rights and reform organization, absolutely supports today's executive order issued by the Governor to postpone in-person voting for tomorrow's Spring election until June 9th, or until such date that the Wisconsin Legislature, meeting in special session, should decide in agreement with the Governor. The health and safety of the citizens of Wisconsin demand that polling places not be opened on April 7th for the purpose of in-person voting.

We vehemently urge that the Wisconsin Legislature place partisan political considerations aside and unite in support of protecting Wisconsin citizens and avert a public health catastrophe.
