Wisconsin Voter ID Ruling Assailed in ACLU Reversal Bid

Wisconsin voter photo ID law challengers asked a federal appeals court to review a Sept. 12 ruling allowing state officials to enforce that provision for the Nov. 4 midterm election.

Contending last week’s ruling by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago came too close to the election date and will sow confusion among voters and polling place officials, the American Civil Liberties Union, League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin and Advancement Project asked for a rehearing by a full 10-judge panel.
