The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked Wisconsin’s Voter ID law for the November election.
In a 6-3 decision, the justices vacated the 7th Court of Appeals decision Monday that upheld the law passed by state lawmakers in 2011 along partisan lines.
The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday asked the high court to block the decision ahead of the November election, and on Thursday it did.
Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas were the dissenting opinions.
Voter ID was only in place for the February 2012 primary and has been in limbo since because of a variety of legal challenges.
