With the U.S. Supreme Court putting a hold on Wisconsin’s voter ID law, it looks like you won’t have to show an ID at the polls on November 4th.  Fond du Lac County Clerk Lisa Freiberg says as of right now its elections will run like they have in the past….you are already registered you’ll just have to state your name and address and sign the poll book, and you’ll be given a ballot. Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen stated earlier today that they are exploring the Supreme Court’s concerns over the law and still have voter ID on election day.
