Press Release

Madison, WI — U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court blocked Wisconsin’s voter ID law pending an appeal:

“I am relieved the Supreme Court has recognized the damage Wisconsin’s Voter ID law could have on our democracy,” said Rep. Mark Pocan. “Poorly implementing a bad law would have been the worst possible outcome for Wisconsin voters.  Implementing Voter ID in such a short amount of time would have disenfranchised voters across the state and could have brought the 2014 election results into question.”
