Voter ID opponents petition SCOTUS to hear Wisconsin case

More than three and a half years after Wisconsin passed its voter ID law, the anti-ID crowd led by the ACLU is still fighting it:


“Opponents of Wisconsin’s requirement that voters show photo ID asked the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday to hear their case and strike down the law. In September, the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago upheld the voter ID law. But the measure was put on hold the following month by a divided Supreme Court out of concerns that there was not enough time to implement it before the November elections…


“The Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld the voter ID law this summer in the two state cases…”


Joining the ACLU in the petition are the League of United Latin American Citizens and the Advancement Project.
