Indiana Supreme Court, on 4-1 Vote, Rejects State Constitutional Challenge to Voter ID Law

You can read the opinion in League of Women Voters v. Rokita here. This case came after the United States Supreme Court held that Indiana’s law did not violate the federal Constitution, and after an intermediate appellate court in the state held the law in fact violated the state constitution. From the majority opinion: “Because it is not alleged in the present case, we need not determine whether an as-applied challenge may be maintained if a claim were presented and proven that reasonable government assistance was not actually available to adequately relieve either the cost or hardship of obtaining photo ID.”
