id card voter law in trouble in another state

Just recently we wrote about Democrats in South Carolina appealing from the new election law. Now it’s Wisconsin turn. Reasoning is pretty much the same, while state photo ID card can be obtained free for voting purposes many citizens complain that documents required to get state identification card are expensive to reproduce when missing. The lawsuit againt new election legislation was filed in Dane County Court by The League for Women voters yesterday. Organization’s director Andrea Kaminski argues that state Constitutions clearly states who is blocked from voting and people without photo ID are not among convicted felons or mentally incompetent. The election law in this case creates another class of people which is not mentioned in the Constitution.
As of now 30 states require identification for voting, 14 of them require ID card to have photograph. Attempts to appeal the new law resulted in no change of the legislation so far.
