Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Whether you need to show an I-D to vote will be up to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The state's highest court has decided to hear arguments in two separate lawsuits challenging the state's requirement that voters show photo identification.

One case was brought by the Milwaukee branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and an immigrant rights group.

The Supreme Court will also hear arguments in a second lawsuit challenging the law filed by the League of Women Voters.
