Andrew Goodman Foundation v. Bostelmann
Challenge to Wisconsin’s restrictions on student IDs for use in voting; namely, that a student ID include the issuance date, an expiration date no more than 2 years from the date of issuance, and a signature, and that the voter who wishes to use the student ID independently prove current enrollment. The State saw a steep decline in student voter turnout after the student voter ID restrictions took effect. The law advances no legitimate state interest—such as preventing voter fraud. Instead, it simply burdens, or “abridges” young voter’s right to vote—specifically to make it harder for young voters to vote because they are young voters. The suit seeks a declaration that the student voter ID law is unconstitutional, as well as preliminary and permanent injunction of the law.
