Wisconsin Now Requires a Photo ID to Vote

On Monday, March 23, 2015, the United States Supreme Court issued an order declining to hear an appeal of Wisconsin's voter photo ID law.  On advise of the Wisconsin Attorney General, the photo ID law will be enforced for Elections after April 2015.  For complete details on Voting in Wisconsin and the Voter Photo ID Law, please refer to the following resources:
