Voter IDs questioned in U.S. Supreme Court

Can you already tell that it’s a presidential election year? Although Indiana’s Voter Identification Law has not yet gone into effect, the U.S. Supreme Court has already entertained debate about its constitutionality. The law mandates that each voter present a valid photo id before voting; a voter without proper identification may fill out a provisional ballot, which will not be counted unless he or she presents a photo ID within ten days of Election Day.

You can find more information on the law by clicking this link to the Indiana state government website, or by clicking this link to an article on Law.com, or this link to an NPR special report on the law.
