Photo ID Required after April 2015 Election

Date

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin voters will not be required to show a photo ID to vote at the April 7, 2015 Spring Election.

The U.S. Supreme Court today cleared the way for enforcement of Wisconsin’s 2011 voter ID law, but because the Spring Election is two weeks away, the Attorney General has advised state election officials not to implement it at the April 7 election.

Kevin Kennedy's Prepared Remarks on Voter ID for 9-16-2014 News Conference

Date

Let me reiterate what I said on Friday after the court decision came down: We are taking every step to fully implement the voter ID law for the November General Election.

Implementing voter photo ID this close to an election will not be easy, but the G.A.B. and Wisconsin’s clerks are up to the challenge.

This is not the first time local election officials have been called upon to step up and serve the voters in a pinch.  We ask a lot of our local election officials – many of whom are part time—and we appreciate their efforts.
