Appeals Court Sides With Wisconsin's Voter ID Laws
The court ruled the laws weren't imposing an undue burden on voters.By Matt Picht | August 26, 2016
Wisconsin's voter ID laws have been upheld by a federal appeals court, which means they will probably still be in effect when voters go to the polls in November.
The 2011 law requires voters to show a valid photo ID, such as a passport or driver's license, at the polls in order to vote. A district judge previously ruled Wisconsin voters without proper ID could instead sign an affidavit verifying their identity at the polling place.
