La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - We're still waiting for the Wisconsin State Supreme Court to announce whether it will rule on the State's Voter I. D. law.
Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen asked the Supreme Court this week to reinstate the law, after two State Judges ruled the law requiring voters to present a photo I.D. id card before voting to be unconstitutional.
Republicans say it would reduce voter fraud. Critics say it unfairly targets minorities and the elderly who do not drive and don't have drivers licenses, and who tend to vote for democrats.
Those voters would have to apply for a voter I.D. card. In La Crosse on Thursday, Van Hollen said those without ID's can get them easily.
He says; "It doesn't target anybody. The reality is we have not had a single example put forward to us of someone who cannot get a photo id. So saying it targets certain individuals is going against the facts and reality."
Van Hollen wants the high court to reinstate the law in time for it to be in effect for the November 6th elections.
