(MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL) Madison - A pair of appeals court rulings this week make clear the state's new voter ID law will remain suspended through the May and June recall elections.
One of the opinions, released Thursday, said there was "no realistic possibility" the case would be decided before the June 5 recall election against Gov. Scott Walker and some of his fellow Republicans.
Walker and Republicans in the Legislature last year approved a new law requiring voters to show photo ID at the polls, but Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan issued an order temporarily blocking the requirement in a case brought by the Milwaukee branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera.
