MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's voter ID law has been struck down by a federal judge in Milwaukee.

In his decision Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman says the law unfairly burdens poor and minority voters.

Supporters have said the law, which was only in effect for a 2012 primary election, would cut down on voter fraud.

In a statement, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said, "I am disappointed with the order and continue to believe Wisconsin's law is constitutional. We will appeal."
