7th Circuit Upholds Indiana Voter ID Law By a 2-1 Vote

While I was travelling yesterday, the Seventh Circuit issued this opinion, with a must-read majority opinion by Judge Posner and a must-read dissent by Judge Evans. I hope to write more about this case later today. In the meantime, you can find this LA Times article (which does not completely capture what I meant to say (while changing planes at DFW) about indigent voters---they can file an indigency affidavit if they can't afford the documents to get the voter id). Bob Bauer weighs in, and there's a vigorous discussion on the Election law listserv.
