Heh, I will just tell them it is a bunch of hype ...
If you need an ID to vote in Wisconsin you may be out of luck depending on where you live.
While thirty-five Democratic lawmakers have been pleading for the governor to extend hours at DMV offices across the state, Governor Walker has stated:
"I think you're gonna hear a lot of talk about it, but in the end, we've actually seen fewer people seeking free ID's recently than we've seen in the past couple years. There's no barrier. That's a lot of hype and hysteria by some on the left."
Governor Walker, that is not hype. Across 40 counties there are DMV service centers that are only open two days a week or less. That is sixty percent
of the state DMV locations only being open a handful of days before the election.
Assemblyman Andy Jorgenson (D-Milton) has stated:
If Wisconsin doesn’t offer DMV service hours that make sense for its citizens, in effect, it will be stripping thousands of people of their right to vote.
Wisconsin only has one DMV office for every 689 square miles—extending the hours now is not about hype, it is not about partisanship. It is about making sure every eligible voter in Wisconsin has the ability to cast a vote.
Scott Walker has proven time and again that he does not care for the people of Wisconsin, if he did, he would extend the operating hours of the DMV to ensure that every citizen who wants an ID can get an ID.
