Today members of the African-American Civic Engagement Roundtable and community partners came together to demand that Clear Channel take down billboards placed throughout Milwaukee that display threatening messages intended to intimidate voters in primarily low-income communities of color. The coalition is requesting that Clear Channel replace the biased and misleading advertisements with information that will help voters exercise their fundamental right to vote in this year’s election.

Wisconsin law allows ex-felons to vote if they are no longer on probation (Off Papers.) If a citizen is on probation for a misdemeanor, they too are eligible to vote.
