Supreme Court Upholds Photo ID Requirement for Absentee Voters


By - Mar 31st, 2020 04:29 pm

[Madison, WI]  Last week, activist clerks in Dane and Milwaukee Counties attempted to circumvent the state’s Photo ID law. Today, in a decision without dissent, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled against those actions. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Today, a unanimous Wisconsin Supreme Court decision soundly rejected the far-left politics of clerks in our state who were trying to undermine an election. Yet again, liberals have tried to legislate through the courts and failed. I am glad to see the Wisconsin Supreme Court upholding the rule of law.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.

    The current State Supreme Court would probably approve the old voting qualification in that only white men who own property can vote.
