Last month, a panel of three appeals judges in the U.S. Seventh Circuit ruled that the state could go ahead with the implementation of the Wisconsin’s Voter ID law for this November’s election — even though the constitutionality of the state law is still under review. The ruling surprised many, not least the municipal clerks across the state who thought they’d have more than a month and a half to prepare. We at the Buzz wanted to hear from the folks who run the elections in communities both large and small, are they ready for Voter ID? Joining the Buzz on October 3 was Maribeth Witsel Behl, City Clerk for the City of Madison, the second-largest city in the state at a population of 240,000. Also joining us by phone is Denise Arnold, Town Clerk for the Town of Oregon, population 3,200.
