Voter ID law upheld by state Supreme Court

The state's high court upheld Wisconsin's law, requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls, today.

The League of Women Voters and the NAACP challenged the law, saying it creates an undue burden on minority and disabled voters. The high court disagreed, but said it has problems with people having to pay for documents, like a birth certificate, to get a state issued ID.

Assistant Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke says lawmakers are open to minor changes.

The ruling does not reinstate photo ID law. A federal judge ruled that it's unconstitutional and the case is before an appeals court. That court is not expected to issue its ruling before the August 12 primary or the November general election.
