Second judge strikes down Wisconsin's voter ID law | Green Bay Press Gazette

More good news in the poll tax Voter ID fight:

MADISON — A second Wisconsin judge has struck down the state’s voter identification law less than a week after another judge temporarily stopped it.

Online court records say Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess issued a permanent injunction Monday. It will complicate plans for state board of election officials who want to have the voter ID law in effect for the April 3 presidential primary.

A different judge in a separate case last week granted a temporary injunction against the law taking effect for the primary. Attorneys for the state have requested to delay that order.

There are four lawsuits challenging the law, which was passed last spring.

Texas is also having problems justifying their voter ID law.
