Wisconsin election chief hopes for post-Nov. voter ID ruling
MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's elections chief says a state Supreme Court ruling on voter ID before Nov. 6 wouldn't provide enough time to get ready for the change at the polls.
Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy says if the court were to reinstate the voter ID law, people might not have adequate time to obtain the proper identification. The law has been blocked by challenges in two cases.
In addition, Kennedy says his agency would have to scramble to train clerks and poll workers on what IDs could be used to vote. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Kennedy says the board has no position on whether the state should require IDs for voting, but he doesn't want any major changes for the November election for administrative reasons.
The high court has not indicated whether it will take the cases.
