Thousands without photo identification that GOP bill would require

According to the [WI Legislative] Fiscal Bureau, about 20 percent of Wisconsin residents do not have the type of identification required under the bill. A 2005 UW-Milwaukee study found that as many as 55 percent of black men and 46 percent of Latino men did not have a state driver’s license. That same study found that 49 percent of black women and 59 percent of Latinas do not have licenses. It’s not known what percentage of those groups have other acceptable forms of photo ID.
