SC to say if voter ID implementation possible

      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 three 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


      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.
