MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has refused to reconsider whether the state’s voter photo identification law is unconstitutional.
Republicans passed the law in 2011. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the immigrant group Voces de la Frontera as well as the League of Women Voters challenged the mandate in separate lawsuits. The state Supreme Court concluded in July that the law is constitutional in both cases.
The NAACP and Voces de la Frontera asked the court last month to reconsider. The court issued an order Wednesday saying the groups missed the deadline for filing such a request by a month. The court said the issue is moot since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Oct. 9 that the law won’t be in effect for the Nov. 4 election.
