Comment from Barbara Beckert: Thanks for the great discussion. Just to clarify, in Wisconsin we have not yet had voter suppression bills signed into law. The bills have been vetoed by our Governor. Disability advocates worked hard to oppose these bills. Disability Rights Wisconsin is a party to a lawsuit (Teigen v WEC) which seeks to end ballot return assistance including mailing or delivery of ballots, and use of drop boxes. We are awaiting a ruling from our State Supreme Court. The restriction are currently in place due to a Circuit Court ruling.

Comment from Bryan Peters: Regarding Wisconsin, a decision is expected anytime soon - today or tomorrow. Interestingly, the case isn't showing up on the daily calendar, so not sure what's going on. However, the court will be going into recess soon, so they HAVE to issue their decision by then. Today is supposed to be last conference of term.

Comment from LaToya-- Just a note, it's important to gain that insight from .gov sites, rather than .com. All official data is public info and available on government sites.

In answer to the question about if there is a disability PAC, this is the main organization I know about: https://disabilityactionusa.com.

YES @Maria!-- I think we need a campaign "Ballot Boxes on the Beach!" Go to where the voters are!
Robin Troutman

From Maureen Graves: I am trying to put together ratings of candidates on disability issues (not just based on self-reports and answers to questionnaires, but also on records and votes). I would appreciate anyone who is interested in this getting in touch with me. I think it is very important to reach broader elements in the disability community who are currently supporting politicians who consistently oppose their interests and rights. maureen@maureengraves.com I need to update the website: disabilityvoters.com
