MADISON, Wis. - A federal appeals court put off a decision until next month on whether to put Wisconsin's voter ID law back in place.
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen had asked the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to reinstate the voter ID law while it considers a lower court ruling that found the requirement to present a photo ID at the polls violated the U.S. Constitution and Voting Rights Act.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a panel of judges said Thursday it would not decide Van Hollen's request until after it hears oral arguments in the case Sept. 12.
Van Hollen wants the voter ID requirement in place for the Nov. 4 election.
