Federal judge strikes down Wisconsin voter ID law
Minorities in Wisconsin are disproportionately likely to live in poverty and those who live in poverty are less likely to drive or participate in other activities such as banking and traveling, in which a photo ID is required, Adelman wrote in his ruling.
"Thus, we find that Blacks and Latinos are less likely than whites to obtain a photo ID in the ordinary course of their lives and are more likely to be without one," he wrote.
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said in a statement that he is "disappointed" with the ruling and plans to appeal.
