No Major Problems Reported Tuesday For Voter ID Law

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012 at 7:11 am

Tuesday the new Voter ID law went into effect for voters across the state of Wisconsin.

While some voters are still opposed to the new ID law, most everybody went through the polls quickly and without any trouble.

What made this February primary different from others were signs stating ‘ID needed’ at the polling places and a few extra steps before voters were handed their ballots. Turnout was relatively low at Tuesday’s primary, but that could have to do with any number of factors.

On Monday we placed a poll about the voter ID requirement on our homepage, and currently it’s not even close: 83 percent of people voting on the poll say they support mandating photo ID to vote.

The next election is April 3, when voters can pick their party’s presidential favorite along with a number of local referendums.
