Constitutional Law — right to vote

The motion for reconsideration of the court’s opinion ending the stay of Wisconsin’s voter ID law is denied.

“Crawford concluded that requiring would-be voters to spend time to obtain photographic identification does not violate the Constitution. ‘For most voters who need them, the inconvenience of making a trip to the [department of motor vehicles], gathering the required documents, and posing for a photograph surely does not qualify as a substantial burden on the right to vote, or even represent a significant increase over the usual burdens of voting.’ 553 U.S. at 198. The burden of getting a photo ID in Wisconsin is not materially different from the burden that Crawford deemed acceptable.” Motion Denied.
