Statement from Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen on District IV Court of Appeals Decision in Voter ID Case

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued the following statement in response to the opinion released today by the Court of Appeals, District IV in the case of League of Women Voters of Wisconsin Education Network, Inc, et al. v. Scott Walker, et al.

 

From the start, we have defended the constitutionality of Wisconsin’s voter ID law. While today’s decision is an important step toward full vindication of the law, we recognize that other challenges are still pending that address different issues. We will continue to defend the law and look forward to favorable decisions in those other cases as well.”
