GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Court trial to begin today on Wisconsin's voter ID law
A federal court trial begins today which could have an impact on Wisconsin's voter I-D law, and dozens of others around the country. The Milwaukee trial combines two federal civil rights lawsuits filed last year against the 2011 state law which requires voters to show acceptable photo I-D's to vote. Thirty states have considered bills this year to adopt or strengthen voter I-D requirements. The Wisconsin trial is expected to last two weeks.
