COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A federal court has given the state of South Carolina until Monday to clarify whether it would be feasible to implement a statewide voter identification requirement for this year's elections.
A panel of 3 federal judges is considering the lawsuit filed by state Attorney General Alan Wilson. Earlier this year, Wilson sued U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder over the U.S. Justice Department's rejection of the law.
Officials have estimated it could take voters up to about two months to get the right ID needed to vote.
Groups that have intervened in the case on the side of the federal government say there is simply not enough time left to both educate voters about the law and give them a chance to get the required identification before the November elections.
