Courts - More on "Federal District Court Strikes Wisconsin Voter ID in ACLU Case"

Updating this ILB post from yesterday, the NYT has an editorial today titled "Voter ID Is the Real Fraud" that states in part:

[T]he judge found that 300,000 Wisconsin voters, or 9 percent of all registered voters, lack the required ID — more than twice the margin of victory in the most recent election for governor. “A substantial number” of those voters, the judge found, are lower-income and poorly educated residents who face a “unique barrier” to getting the underlying documents needed to obtain a photo ID. Some cannot afford the $20 for a birth certificate; others must spend weeks tracking down documents at government agencies inaccessible by public transportation.
Jaime Fuller of the Washington Post's "The Fix" surveys the 12 other states whether the voter ID issue is pending.
