Wis. Supreme Court hears Voter-ID Law challenges

By  | 

MADISON, WI (WEAU) The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on a pair of lawsuits challenging the state's voter photo identification law.

Oral arguments were presented from both sides at a hearing Tuesday in Madison.

The NAACP filed the lawsuit, arguing it creates an undue burden on people to get state-issued id's and paying for copies of supporting documents such as birth certificates.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice is defending the law.

Besides the lawsuit at the supreme court level, two other challenges are pending in federal court in Milwaukee.
