Judge orders investigation into failure to issue temporary ID'sSubmitted: 09/30/2016
MADISON - A judge has ordered an investigation into whether transportation officials have been denying people temporary photo ID to vote.

U.S. District Judge James Peterson issued the order Friday after media reports surfaced that transportation officials refused to issue a temporary ID to a man without a birth certificate.

Peterson ruled in July that the state must quickly issue voting credentials to anyone trying to obtain a free photo ID for voting but lack underlying documents.

The American Civil Liberties Union argued in court filings that the Department of Transportation hasn't followed through on a pledge that anyone who lacks the proper supporting documents to obtain a state photo ID card can obtain a temporary ID for voting if they visit a Division of Motor Vehicles office and begin a petition process for obtaining a card with whatever documentation they have.
