This might be the best way to attack voter disenfranchisement.
Jsonline: The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin sued the state Thursday in an attempt to block a new requirement that voters show photo identification at the polls.
The suit argues the state constitution allows the Legislature to exclude felons and the incompetent from voting, but cannot restrict others from voting. The new photo ID law creates a new class of people who cannot vote - those without ID - and thus violates the state constitution, the suit argues.
The suit also notes that people who lose a free state ID must pay $16 to replace it.
"Founded by the suffragists who won the right to vote for women in 1920 after a decades-long struggle, the League of Women Voters believes voting is a fundamental citizen right that must be guaranteed," Ramey said in a statement. "We are appalled by the stories the league is hearing about the barriers people are facing in trying to obtain an acceptable ID."
