Photo ID or not?


Will election officials ask to see your photo ID when you go to vote next week? The answer as of Monday afternoon was maybe or maybe not.

"The short story is photo ID is off," said Pierce County Clerk Jamie Feuerhelm. He added, "At least temporarily."

St. Croix County Clerk Cindy Campbell said she has sent information to the local clerks in her county "to let them know there's a chance (the photo ID requirement) may be in place for April 3."
