This is good news… a court has held that Wisconsin’s voter ID law will be in effect during this upcoming election even as so many left-wing, voter fraud-supporting groups are suing the state to have the law over turned.
NBC News reports that the 7th District Court of Appeals has OKayed the voter ID law for the 2016 election…
The court’s decision likely means that, barring intervention by the U.S. Supreme Court, the strict ID measure will be in place in a key presidential swing state, where it could make voting much harder, especially for racial minorities and students.
In July, a district court ruled that Wisconsin must soften its law by allowing voters who were unable to get ID to sign an affidavit attesting to their identity. Earlier this month, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit blocked that ruling from going into effect for the November election. On Friday afternoon, the full appeals court unanimously upheld the panel’s decision, after an appeal from voting rights groups.
The appeals court noted that in a separate challenge to the voter ID law, a court had required Wisconsin to make IDs as easy as possible to obtain, including by giving out temporary IDs at DMV offices. As a result, the appeals court found, the affidavit option is unnecessary to ensure that voters aren’t disenfranchised.
There is only one reason to ever oppose a voter ID law — that is to pave the way for vote fraud. Period.
