Voter Photo ID Law Status: No ID Currently Required for Voting

Two separate judges, on March 6 and March 12, 2012, issued injunctions preventing the Government Accountability Board from enforcing photo ID requirements in 2011 Act 23. The Wisconsin Department of Justice appealed those injunctions on behalf of the G.A.B., and on May 30, 2013 the G.A.B. prevailed in one of the two cases, the League of Women Voters case, in the District IV Court of Appeals.  The second case is still pending in the District II Court of Appeals.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has twice declined to hear the cases prior to action by the Court of Appeals.
