Voter Photo ID Update

Voter Photo ID Update

The Government Accountability Board (GAB) sent the following communication to Clerks on January 9, 2015:

The plaintiffs in the federal lawsuit challenging the Voter Photo ID requirement have filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court.  Therefore, the court injunction prohibiting implementation of the photo ID requirement remains in effect until the appeal has been resolved by the Supreme Court.  Until further notice, therefore, the photo ID requirement is not to be enforced in Wisconsin elections. 

We do not expect voter photo ID to be reinstated before the February 17th Spring Primary. We nonetheless urge any eligible voter who does NOT have voter photo ID to obtain one in case the requirement is ultimately reinstated. More information is here.
