There’s a lawsuit in the works to challenge Wisconsin’s new voter identification law. Andrea Kaminski with the Wisconsin League of Women Voters says the Wisconsin Constitution does allow for some restrictions on access to the right to vote — for convicted felons and persons who have been legally ruled incompetent. But the League will contend in its lawsuit that the state’s new voter identification requirement has created a third restricted class. “It’s admittedly a minority, but there are people who don’t have acceptable ID and cant get it without, for instance, getting a copy of their birth certificate. And in fact they may never have been issued a birth certificate.” Kaminski says the lawsuit will be filed in Dane County Court in the next couple of weeks.
