League of Women Voters, ACLU Blast New Voter ID Process

The League of Women Voters of Wisconsin Thursday said the state's new process for issuing photo ID's for voters is designed to "cause confusion and discourage people from voting."

Andrea Kaminski, executive director of the voting rights group, issued the sharply worded statement on the heels of the announcement of a state Division of Motor Vehicles program to issue free identification records to people who have never had a Wisconsin driver's license or state ID card, and who can't prove their U.S. citizenship, names or dates of birth.
