Wisconsin Voter ID - the Solution Without a Problem

Not long ago we heard the favorite talking point that Voter ID was "a solution in search of a problem."

Reports from Wisconsin are uniform: voter ID in Wisconsin appears to be a solution without a problem.

Voter ID law causes no issues in local primary elections

Voter ID law off to smooth start in Wisconsin

Voter ID law takes effect with no major problems

Voters flash photo ID at the polls; no issues reported in first test of law

Minimal voter ID problems reported in southeast Wisconsin

Pollworkers Report Few Voter ID Issues

First test of photo voter ID goes smoothly

GAB chief: first Wisconsin election with voter ID 'went reasonably well'

And from Wisconsin Public Radio: South Side Residents Have Few Problems With Voter ID

As I've written before, Voter ID is not an issue that merits the energy and money that the civil rights group have invested.  It is popular.  And in Wisconsin, it seems to work, so far.  Opposition to Voter ID seems a poor allocation of resources by groups that purport to have limited funding.  In Wisconsin, they have overplayed their hand.
