State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt On Reinstatement Of Voter Photo ID Law

Barring an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court voters in Wisconsin will need photo ID for November’s election. A federal court reinstated the state’s voter ID law late last week. State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says unless there is an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court voters will need photo ID this fall. He says having voter photo ID in place gives more integrity to the election process and in polling is something a majority of people favor. He says more people tend to vote in states with the voter photo ID requirement. He believes that’s because people feel more secure about the voting process and that their vote is being counted and not negated by someone who is voting illegally.
