The ACLU of Wisconsin Foundation is holding a Community Conversation: Voting Rights while Incarcerated on Thursday, December 1, at Nō Studios.
Earlier this year the ACLU of Wisconsin released "Ballots For All, Ensuring Wisconsinites in Jail Have Voting Access". This report aims to analyze previous steps taken and any progress of Wisconsin jail administrators to address formerly identified challenges and shortfalls in their respective jail voting policies, which can facilitate widespread de facto disenfranchisement in Wisconsin. Furthermore, this update aims to highlight the fundamental and intersectional barriers that prevent eligible Wisconsinites, both within, and outside of the carceral system, from fully participating in the voting process.
