The Republican Party at the Wisconsin and national levels remain engaged in their multi-year project to obstruct voters through the use of Photo Voter ID laws, as proposed by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, first reported by the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD).
Since 2011, "an unprecedented wave of voter suppression policies were passed or proposed in a majority of states, making access to the ballot more burdensome for voters of color" and college-age citizens, as noted in the Advancement Project and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
The Republican Party has been the sole party responsible for the wave of voter suppression in an effort to keep non-GOP voting citizens from exercising their right to vote.
