Madison, Wis. (NNCNOW.com) -- A federal judge struck down Wisconsin's voter ID law on Tuesday saying it violates the Voting Rights Act and the U.S Constitution.
In May of 2011 the Wisconsin Legislature passed Act 32 which requires residents to present a photo ID in order to vote.
The act was put in place to prevent voter I–D fraud.
U.S. District Court Judge Lynn Adelman said in his analysis there is no significant evidence that points to voter ID fraud happening in the state.
The decision comes in the lead–up to the November elections.
