Wisconsin Supreme Court will not review voter I.D. case


This moves the process forward. Only a U.S. Supreme Court ruling can over turn this now.

From WKOW:

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has refused to take up of appeals of rulings blocking a new state law requiring voters to present photo identification at the polls.

The court did not explain why it was not taking up either appeal (League of Women Voters and NAACP) in separate orders issued Monday.

Four of the seven justices had to agree to take the cases for the high court to hear them.

Two separate state appeals courts last month had asked the court to take up the appeals and consolidate the cases in order to speed resolution.

The photo ID requirement was blocked by two separate Dane County circuit court judges last month. A trial in one of those cases began Monday
