MADISON (AP) - Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles employees gave inaccurate information to people seeking voting credentials, attorneys for the state acknowledged Friday night while maintaining that media reports exaggerated the problems and that transportation officials have implemented changes to streamline the application process. The filing said undercover state troopers were given correct information this week and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has updated training protocols as well as created specialists to help applicants. A judge had ordered the state to report on how its voter ID law is being administered following the release of audio recordings that revealed DMV workers giving inaccurate information to people seeking voting credentials in lieu of photo identification.
