Walker says DOJ found problems with voter ID at DMV offices


MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Gov. Scott Walker says the state Department of Justice found problems with how Wisconsin’s voter ID law was being administered during spot checks of driver license stations.

Walker said Friday that DOJ “had concerns” with what they found at Division of Motor Vehicle spot checks. He says the DMV has responded to those concerns.

The DMV must submit a report in federal court by Friday outlining how it is implementing a court order that credentials for voting be given to people who lack the required documents to get a photo ID. Walker’s administration had ordered the DMV to get the credentials to voters within six days, but recordings from various DMV offices revealed workers were giving inaccurate information.

Walker says DMV workers must administer the law “in a uniform way.”
