Wisconsin Voter ID Trial Wraps Up With Verdict Expected In July

Excerpt: 

A verdict in a federal trial on Wisconsin’s voter ID law is expected by late July, according to the judge presiding over the case. Arguments in the trial ended Thursday in Madison.

Judge James Peterson said his anticipated late-July decision will come too close to the Aug. 9 partisan primary to affect that election.  

"Whatever I find, the decision will have no impact on the August election," he said. "Realistically, the August election is going to be shortly after this decision comes out."

Virginia Democrats to appeal voter ID case

Excerpt: 

The Democrats behind a lawsuit challenging Virginia's voter ID law will appeal last week's loss in district court to the U.S. Court of Appeals, the lead attorney said Thursday.

The group filed its notice of appeal Wednesday, and will ask for an expedited review by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in Richmond.

"We look forward to the Court of Appeals considering this important case as quickly as possible," attorney Marc Elias said in an email. "It would be inexplicable and disappointing for the state to try to slow walk the appeal in this case. The citizens of Virginia deserve a prompt hearing in time to avoid disenfranchising voters in advance of the 2016 election."

The suit, Lee v. Virginia State Board of Elections, seeks to overturn the state's requirement that voters bring photo ID to the polls, arguing that it unconstitutionally targets minority voters, senior citizens and others less likely to have photo ID.
