Gov. Tony Evers disappointed in SCOWIS ruling allowing in-person voting for Tuesday Presidential Primary


Gov. Tony Evers

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers responded to the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision to overturn his call to suspend Tuesday's Presidential Primary to June due to the coronavirus.

“There are few things we hold more sacred and that are more American than the right to vote. People have bled, fought, and died for the right to vote in this country. But tomorrow in Wisconsin, thousands will wake up and have to choose between exercising their right to vote and staying healthy and safe. In this time of historic crisis, it is a shame that two branches of government in this state chose to pass the buck instead of taking responsibility for the health and safety of the people we were elected to serve.”
