MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin would join 27 other state in requiring that identification be shown before voters can register to vote or cast ballots under a bill circulated for co-sponsorship by Republicans on Friday.
Republican leaders promised to push the voter ID bill after they won back majority control of the Legislature following the November mid-term elections. Newly elected Republican Gov. Scott Walker has indicated he supports the requirement, but his office had no immediate comment on the bill being circulated.
Republicans passed the voter ID requirement three times when Democrat Jim Doyle was governor, only to have it vetoed each time.
