A Voting Rights Victory

A federal judge in Milwaukee gave voting rights activists a victory when he struck down a Wisconsin law requiring voters to show a state-issued photo ID at the polls. U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman said that the law placed an unfair burden on poor and minority voters and also violates the Voting Rights Act and the U.S. Constitution.
