Yesterday the Indiana Supreme Court upheld the State's voter ID law. The statute says one must present a form of identification before casting a vote. ID are offered free from the BMV.
Can someone, anyone, offer a case against this apparently reasonable requirement? The League of Women voters argues against the measure by stating that the State has failed to show that voter fraud exists. I guess once we have a fraudulent election it is Ok to fix the problem?
We have to show or ID to board a plane, cash a check, buy plates for our car, collect welfare and food stamps. In Indiana you have to show ID to buy beer, no matter your age. Why should we not aspire to the highest integrity when exercising one of our most precious rights -- the franchise?
