The primary on Feb. 21 in Muskego proved to be 'pretty smooth' for voters who had to show their IDs for the first time. However, while they may still feel the need to present one in April, they will no longer need to.
A law requiring registered state voters to show a photo ID to cast their ballots on April 3 is now on hold. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan granted an injunction Tuesday, effectively blocking the law, known as Act 23. A trial for a permanent injunction begins on April 16.
Muskego Deputy Clerk Jill Blenski said "the worst part is not know if and when it could change again.
"We're sending out absentee ballots next week, and for the most part they are for permanent absentees, but some are not, and for them it's likely to be confusing," she said.
"I feel bad for the voters, this is difficult - we havent' gotten any calls yet, but then again this has just happened," she added.
The reversal of the law will impact the April 3 election, as a trial on the injunction is not scheduled until April 16.
