Federal appeals court panel seemed skeptical of lower courts' Wisconsin voting law rulings

Excerpt: 

Three federal judges expressed deep skepticism Friday over claims that Wisconsin Republicans had deliberately made it harder for minorities to vote, raising the prospect they would reinstate limits on early voting. ...

[The judges] showed they had just as many doubts about lower court rulings that struck down voting rules set by GOP Gov. Scott Walker and Republican lawmakers. ...

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the heart of the voter ID law in 2014 in the ACLU case. But that litigation has continued over how the Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles has handled those who have trouble getting IDs because they don’t have birth certificates or have other challenges in proving their identity.

Big Turnout in Opposition to Maine Voter Photo I.D. Bill

Excerpt: 

Testifying against the voter I.D. bill, Deputy Secretary of State Julie Flynn noted that the provision to provide photo I.D.s to the 202,614 potential voters without a driver’s license or state I.D. would cost about $581,500 in addition to the money needed to educate voters about such a drastic change. She added that in her 22 years working for the Secretary of State she was “unaware of any evidence being presented to the State of voter impersonation at the polls.” She said that the Attorney General’s office has only prosecuted four cases where someone voted twice in the same election in the past 10 years.

“In three instances, the person registered and voted in two different towns,” said Flynn. “In the fourth instance, the voter obtained an absentee ballot both for himself and his son and voted both ballots. So, in the latter instance, voter impersonation was involved, but with absentee ballots rather than voting at the polls, and it was detected and investigated due to the signatures on both absentee envelopes appearing the same. None of these four situations would have been prevented by requiring a voter to show ID at the voting place.”
