WI Republican Seeks To Amend State Voter ID

Republican state lawmakers are aiming to make Voter ID the default in Wisconsin by amending the state constitution to require them. Wausau Assemblyman Pat Snyder says this won’t prevent people from voting.

“Under the amendment, the state legislature would still be able to create an exception to the requirements in statutes, and qualified electors who lack valid identification on elections day would still be able to cast a provisional ballot.”

The amendment would need to pass through the legislature twice and then go to a vote on elections day to make it into the state constitution. It’s unclear if the State Senate will take up the measure this session.
