MADISON, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear arguments February 25th on a pair of legal challenges to the state's photo I-D law for voting. The justices said yesterday they would hold a joint appeals' hearing after two Dane County court rulings struck down the 2011 law.

The League of Women Voters and Milwaukee's NAACP both won separate lawsuits challenging the I-D requirement at the polls.

The state insists the law is needed to fight voter fraud.

The Wisconsin I-D law was used only once, in the February 2012 state-and-local primaries, before it was shut down.

A federal court is also deciding two other challenges.
