Fewer Than 20% of Ballots Case by Voters Without ID Were Counted

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Fewer than 20 percent of the provisional ballots cast in the election two weeks ago by voters who didn’t have the required photo ID were counted. The preliminary tally comes Tuesday from the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The commission says there were at least 750 provisional ballots cast in the election and of those 618 were issued because the voter didn’t have an acceptable photo ID. This was the first presidential election where voters were required to show a photo ID. Opponents of the law say it negatively impacted Democratic voter turnout, particularly in Milwaukee.
