Hey Voter, Show Me Your ID!

Posted by Ryan on April 28, 2008

The Roberts Court ruled today that Indiana’s Voter ID law is constitutional in a 6-3 decision by amply justifying that IDs  serve “the valid interest in protecting ‘the integrity and reliability of the electoral process,'” according to the majority.

I’ll let you guess which three were in the minority…

Give up? 

Stephen “International Law” Breyer, Ruth “Biddy” Ginsburg, and David “Don’t Tax My View” Souter, of course!

I totally agree with this decision.  Unlike Indiana, New Jersey does not require photo IDs at the polling station.  Yet, when I do vote I always make sure to take out my ID and politely ask a loud question, “Do you need to see my ID?” so that everyone can hear.  I get kudos every time.  The Decision does not make states require ID verification, but it allows them to choose.  I guess this is one “pro-choice” decision the Libs won’t like!
