Supreme Court hears voter ID arguments

Attorneys are making their arguments before the state Supreme Court today, over the state's voter ID law.

Attorney Clayton Kawski is representing the state justice department, against two challenges to the photo ID requirement. He says without it, people could impersonate someone else.

The League of Women Voters and the Milwaukee chapter of the NAACP filed separate lawsuits. Attorney Lester Pines is representing the league. He says the limited forms of acceptable ID could disenfranchise some voters.

The Legislature approved the law in 2011, but two Dane County judges put the ID requirement on hold, pending a final decision on the lawsuits. There are also two federal lawsuits, against the rule.
