Madison, Wisconsin – A 2011 voter identification law is still tied up in court, even after clearing at least one challenge in federal court.  Civil rights and voter’s groups are still aiming for the law however, and have requested the court to issue a temporary order that would allow voters without the proper to identification, to vote in the upcoming elections.

The law at issue requires the following types of identification to cast a vote at the polls in Wisconsin:

  • Wisconsin driver’s license or state ID card;
  • a U.S. passport, military ID card;
  • a college ID meeting certain requirements;
  • a naturalization certificate; or
  • IDs issued by a Wisconsin-based American Indian tribe.

Residents can apply for a state ID with the Department of Motor Vehicles but must prove personal details and citizenship. Read more at The Star Tribune.
