Kudos to those students from the UW-Madison and -Milwaukee.
Dissenters dominate Wisconsin voter ID bill committee hearing

Opponents of Assembly Bill 7 (AB-7) packed the Assembly Committee on Election and Campaign Reform’s public hearing on the Wisconsin Voter Identification Bill Wednesday.
AB-7 would require certain identification at the polls and increase residency requirements, in addition to ending straight-ticket voting and strengthening absentee voter regulation.
Although some testified in favor of the bill’s elimination of party-line voting and protections against voter fraud, they were few and far between at a hearing dominated largely by University of Wisconsin students from Madison and Milwaukee whose rounds of applause intermittently disrupted the hearing.
