Van Hollen asks Supreme Court to take up voter ID cases

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take up and consolidate two lawsuits over the state's voter ID law.

Van Hollen wants to avoid two separate decisions by the Court of Appeals and have one final decision issued by the state's high court.

The League of Women Voters and the Milwaukee branch of the NAACP are both suing the state, saying the voter ID law is unconstitutional.

Supporters of the law say it is needed to uphold the integrity of elections in Wisconsin.

The law is currently on hold due to two separate rulings by judges in Dane County. The state has appealed both rulings.
