Second Voter ID Lawsuit Prevails in Wisconsin

Statement on Ruling in League of Women Voters Photo ID Lawsuit 

Voces de la Frontera and the Milwaukee Branch of the NAACP are pleased that the League of Women Voters has prevailed in its challenge to the voter photo ID law and that Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess has granted the motion for summary judgment in that case.

Judge Niess’ ruling, combined with Judge Flanagan’s temporary injunction of last week, send a powerful message that Act 23 has significant and substantial constitutional infirmities, which violate the spirit of voter access and citizen participation in the electoral process in Wisconsin.
