Supreme Court upholds Indiana Voter I.D. Law
In a 6-3 vote, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Indiana Voter I.D. Law in a decision that may have a major impact on the upcoming 2008 Election.
Justice John Paul Stevens wrote the majority opinion which reaffirms the state rights to insure that elections are fair and conducted with the utmost integrity.
Civil libertarians argued that asking for I.D. is an infringement on the rights of citizens to cast votes in elections.
Close to 20 states have some sort of voter I.D. laws.
Speculation is that one of the ramifications of this decision, will be more states requiring I.D. to cast ballots in the upcoming 2008 Presidential Election.
