- Training poll workers turned out to be a big concern about the voter-ID law.
The top official with Wisconsin's elections board, Kevin Kennedy, testified Thursday in a federal hearing.
He says there were more than 18-hundred election workers in Wisconsin at the time.
Thats one-sixth the number for the entire nation.
He says it's ``never an easy process'' to keep workers up to speed on new voting laws, particularly when the rules are fairly complicated.
Kennedy heads the state's Government Accountability Board.
The board got the job of enforcing the voter-ID law, which requires voters show photo ID at the polls.
The voter-ID law passed in 20-11 but has been put on hold pending a number of legal challenges.
