Fighting Voter ID

Voter ID Law Struck Down by Indiana Appellate Court

Last week the Indiana Court of Appeals struck down the photo identification requirement for voting that was upheld by the US Supreme Court in its Crawford decision last year.  In doing so, the court ruled on the basis of equal protection as guaranteed by Indiana's state constitution, which is more extensive than federal law.  The Indiana court follows Missouri, whose photo ID requirement was found unconstitutional under that state's constitution in 2006.
