Voter ID law to take effect Tuesday

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Wisconsin state leaders say they're ready for the new Voter ID law to take effect during Tuesday's Spring Primary election.

The event is traditionally a low turnout affair, and it's expected to be even lower with no statewide elections on the ballot this year.

But officials say because of possible confusion with the Voter ID law and new boundaries for local races, the election will be a good dry run for what should be a higher turnout presidential primary on April 3rd.

Less than 30 percent of all state municipalities will hold elections.

Only 5 to 10 percent of eligible voters are expected at the polls.
