The Wisconsin Republicans were hopeful that they’d be able to roll out a new voter ID law ahead of the November 4th elections. However, they were met with disappointment, as the Supreme Court has stepped in and stopped the law from being put into effect for this election.
Which is probably only fair, considering there’s barely enough time between now and the election for anybody without a photo ID to get one.
Not to mention they’ve proven time and time again that these laws disproportionately affect minorities and lower income families…so they’re supposed to be unconstitutional…but whatever, right?
This comes on the same day that Texas’ voter ID law took a big hit, when a federal court ruled for the US Department of Justice against the state.
