MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Assembly is expected to vote next week on a Republican bill designed to reinstate photo identification requirements for voters.
The bill would allow voters to opt out of the mandate if they swear they're poor, have a religious objection to being photographed or can't obtain the documents they need to get an ID.
A Dane County judge last year struck down voter ID requirements, noting the substantially impairs the poor's right to vote. The judge said birth certificates are needed to obtain IDs and voters who lack the certificates must pay to obtain them.
Republicans say they're revising the measure, though, after a surge of complaints at a public hearing this week that poor voters would be forced to humiliate themselves at the polls.
