The city of Madison on Tuesday held a mock election with the goal of ironing out any potential wrinkles of Wisconsin's new voter ID law.
The city clerk's office held the fake election specifically to see how much extra time the new law will require voters to spend in line.
The new law requires voters to sign the poll book and to present a photo ID.
Clerks said they are running different scenarios to train election officials, but they are still not at the speed they hope to be at by February.
"Right now, it is looking like it's going to take twice as long in line, and we've been working very hard at cutting that down," said Elena Berg, a municipal clerk.
Berg said voters can also help keep the lines down if they check their IDs early and register early.
