The dispute over a 2023 voter ID law is headed to the Idaho Supreme Court.
The League of Women Voters is appealing a ruling that upheld a law that banned the use of student IDs as voter ID, KTVB reported Friday.
The announcement comes just four days after Ada County District Judge Samuel Hoagland rejected a lawsuit from the League of Women Voters and the advocacy group BABE VOTE. The groups said the ban on the use of student IDs would disenfranchise young voters.
Hoagland rejected this argument, and said the state has an interest in creating a consistent voter ID standard.
In addition to passing a bill banning the use of student IDs as voter ID, the 2023 Legislature passed a separate bill creating a free identification card voters can use at the polls.
