DNC Response to Polito’s (R-MA) Support for Voter ID Laws that Needlessly Make Voting Harder

Washington, DC - Last night in the Lt. Governors debate in Newton, Republican Karyn Polito reaffirmed her support for controversial Republican voter ID laws that needlessly make voting harder and suppress voter turnout.


In response to Polito’s comments, Pratt Wiley, the Democratic National Committee’s Director of Voter Expansion, released the following statement:


“In Massachusetts this year, Gov. Patrick signed one of the most expansive and modern voting laws in the entire nation – bringing early voting, online voter registration and pre-registration to the Commonwealth.  These improvements are going to bring more citizens into the process, because in Massachusetts we know we solve problems with more democracy, not less. The choice is clear, while Steve Kerrigan is committed to expanding opportunity for all, Karyn Polito is pulling a page from the same cynical Republican playbook that believes that when fewer people vote, they win more elections.”
