We’ve said it many times before. Our democracy works best when everyone participates in it. That’s why we have called for expanding voting opportunities through absentee ballots and early voting. But a new complaint and possible lawsuit threatens to make more than a quarter million voters in Wisconsin ineligible to vote in next year’s presidential primary. The conservative group The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty has threatened the lawsuit, arguing the Wisconsin Elections Commission should remove 234,000 voters in Wisconsin from the voting rolls. The commission mailed notices to those voters, who according to the Post Office and the Department of Motor Vehicles may have moved since they last voted. The notice gives them two years to confirm their address. The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty says those people who may have moved should be removed from the voter rolls after just 30 days. That doesn’t seem very democratic. Doing so would mean these quarter million voters would risk not being able to vote in the February primary for the state Supreme Court race, or in the April Presidential primary and spring general election in which a new member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court will be elected. We should be working to make it easier for people to vote not harder. Our democracy functions at its best when more people participate in the process.
