FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Senator Kathleen Vinehout Statement on the Actions of the Senate:
 
“Senate Bill 324 makes absentee voting difficult for both urban and rural people.”
 
“Many of my constituents and I vote on the weekend or in the evening at our town clerk's kitchen table. Senate Bill 324 makes illegal this practice of setting up an appointment with a town clerk to absentee vote on the weekend or evening.”
 
“Many people who live in rural areas commute to larger cities for work every day. Many others drive trucks or cover large sales territories and simply cannot be home during the limited voting hours. Still others work several jobs – all of them located away from home.”
 
“Urban areas will be required to cut back the hours for early voting – including the city of Eau Claire.”
 
“Wisconsin has a long tradition of making sure people can exercise their fundamental right to vote.  Across this state, people in both urban and rural areas will rightly be angry when they learn early voting will become more difficult.”
