“Wisconsin Supreme Court justices raise concerns about voter ID law”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Wisconsin Supreme Court justices expressed concerns Tuesday about the state’s requirement — halted since soon after it was enacted — that voters show photo identification at the polls.

Among those raising questions was Justice Patience Roggensack, widely viewed as a leader of the conservative bloc that makes up a majority of the court. She said she was bothered that to get state ID cards for voting, people would have to provide a birth certificate or pay $20 to get one.

“I’m troubled by having to pay the state to vote,” she said during three hours of arguments.
