MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess says he’ll wait until next week to announce whether he’ll permanently strike down Wisconsin’s voter ID law. The judge held a hearing today in a lawsuit filed by the state’s League of Women Voters. The League says the law makes it difficult or impossible for poor, elderly, minority, and other residents to vote. The law took effect last month, but it was temporarily halted this week by a different judge in connection with a different lawsuit. The state is appealing that ruling.
