U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Voter ID Law

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the challenges of the Voter ID law, giving the Republican party a major victory towards stricter election laws.

This decision means that all voters for the April 7th election must have a form of ID in order ot cast their ballot.

Following the Supreme Court's decision, Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel commented on the decision saying, \"Our legal team did an outstanding job defending Wisconsin law, from the trial court to the U.S. Supreme Court. Absentee ballots are already in the hands of voters, therefore, the law cannot be implemented for the April 7 election. The Voter ID law will be in place for future elections – this decision is final.\"

Comments following this decision from the Democratic party have not been made yet.
