Washington, DC –Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4) applauded the rejection by voters of SB5 in Ohio, the Voter ID law in Maine and a ban on abortions in Mississippi. “Last night voters across this country returned the power to the people by sending a resounding message that ‘Main Street’ will not be silenced or ignored. In Ohio, voters went to the polls in record numbers in an effort to repeal State Bill 5. A resounding majority of the Ohio community made it clear that they will not allow Republican politicians to take away the right of hard-working Americans.”

Moore also congratulated the people of Maine for rejecting a law requiring voters to enroll at lleast two days before an election, restoring a four-decade policy of allowing registrations as late as Election Day. “In Mississippi, we saw a victory for women with voters rejecting a measure that would have made it the first state to ban abortion by declaring that life begins at conception. “These referendums were truly a victory for the working class of this country as well as a woman’s right to choose.”
