Madison, WI (AP) — Wisconsin’s board of elections says it will meet soon to discuss whether to appeal a judge’s ruling to stop the state’s new voter identification law.
The Government Accountability Board will discuss the ruling at a meeting Monday. The board plans to meet with attorneys from the state’s Department of Justice.
Spokesman Reid Magney says no decision has been made yet regarding an appeal.
Dane County Circuit Court Judge David Flanagan granted the temporary injunction Tuesday. It stops the contentious law from taking effect for the state’s April 3 presidential primary election.
Republicans have criticized Flanagan for signing a petition in November to recall GOP Gov. Scott Walker.
