Wisconsin’s voter ID law blocked tens of thousands from polls & tipped state to Trump. My cover story @motherjones motherjones.com/politics/2017/…
@MotherJones The head of elections in Milwaukee told me Wisconsin voter ID law “changed the outcome of the presidential election in Wisconsin.”
@MotherJones Up to 45,000 people disenfranchised by Wisconsin voter ID law in 2016 found UW study. Trump won state by 22,000 votes
@MotherJones 16 million Americans had problems voting in 2016. There were 1 million “lost votes” because of voter ID laws, lines, difficulty registering
@MotherJones 2016 was 1st presidential election in 50 years without full Voting Rights Act & 22 states now have new voting restrictions in effect
@MotherJones This is Andrea Anthony from Milwaukee. Voted in every election since 18 but was disenfranchised in 2016 because of Wisconsin voter ID law
@MotherJones This is April Lowe from Madison. Has always voted but couldn’t vote in 2016 because she didn’t have Wisconsin photo ID
@MotherJones Too many in media ignored impact of voter suppression in 2016. 25 presidential debates but not single question about voting rights
@MotherJones Wisconsin GOP bragged about disenfranchising “neighborhoods around Milwaukee & college campuses” when voter ID law passed
@MotherJones Very important point from @jasonkander: “It has been a politically consequence-free exercise for vote suppressors. That has to change.”
@MotherJones @JasonKander The good news is people like @votermolly of @aclu doing incredible work helping people get voter IDs to combat suppression
@MotherJones @JasonKander @votermolly @ACLU .@MarkHelenowski did amazing video to accompany my article showing real world impact of voter ID laws. Must watch
