Live Interview with Ari Berman on Wisconsin Voter Suppression in 2016 Election

Iowa native Ari Berman took a trip to Wisconsin to study the impact of Wisconsin’s voter ID law on the 2016 election and had this to report:

“Tens of thousands of people were prevented from voting because of voter ID law in Wisconsin.  One in ten people who didn’t vote in 2016 cited the voter ID law as a reason why.  Up to 23,000 people were prevented from voting in Madison and Milwaukee alone and up to 45,000 statewide because of the voter ID law;  Donald Trump won the state by only 22,700 votes.”
