The November election is 216 days away.
The Wisconsin Republican presidential primary will be held today. Voters will not have to show government-issued photo ID -- at least not yet. The legal challenges to one of the nation’s most restrictive photo ID laws are headed directly to the state Supreme Court.
The court could rule at any time so voters should get ready. A whopping 55 percent of African American men do not have a driver’s license.
Similarly, 49 percent of black women lack an official photo ID. Among African Americans between the ages of 18 and 24, 78 percent of black men and 66 percent of black women do not have a driver’s license.
The clock is ticking.
