Hours after hearing arguments on the issue, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals rules that Wisconsin officials “may … enforce the photo ID requirement” for the upcoming elections.
Having read the briefs and heard oral argument, this court now stays the injunction issued by the district court. The State of Wisconsin may, if it wishes (and if it is appropriate under rules of state law), enforce the photo ID requirement in this November’s elections.
Although the court noted that this only is a ruling as to whether the requirement can be implemented for this election — noting that “an opinion on the merits will issue in due course” — it clearly signals the court’s likelihood to reverse the trial court decision when it does so.
If you are a U.S. citizen, will be at least 18 years of age by the next election, and would like a Wisconsin ID card to vote (although it's not currently required), please check the ID for FREE box when completing the MV3004 (Wisconsin Identification Card (ID) application) or when applying online.
