Supreme Court Rules Voter ID Constitutional

Democrats everywhere worried about voter fraud can finally rest easy. The Supreme Court ruled today, in a 6-3 decision, that requiring voters to show a government issued photo ID does not violate the Constitution.

The Supreme Court, voting 6-3, on Monday rejected a constitutional challenge to Indiana’s law requiring voters to show a government-issued photo ID before they may cast a ballot. Three Justices said the evidence offered against the requirement in Indiana did not support a challenge to the law as written — that is, a “facial” challenge – and three others said the law only imposed a minimal and justified burden on voters.

Hopefully, states, like Missouri, that have already passed their own voter ID laws will begin enforcing them so we can see a lot less dead voters and illegal immigrants casting ballots.

Hats off to the Supreme Court!

Too bad it won't affect Missouri. The law we passed here was already struck down by the MO Supreme Court. They would like to make a new law, but don't have the time for this session.

Dems need to realize that providing ID is the norm with anything today. Do these Dems support no ID's to withdraw money from their bank accounts? They're showing their ignorance crying about providing IDs.

Or are they intentionally trying to promote crime, ID theft, and the likes?
