The Supreme Court yesterday upheld an Indiana law that requires voters to show a photo ID.
I think that the ruling is well-intentioned, but don't think it is fair in a practical sense.
Absentee ballots can be sent without picture ID; why should showing up in person necessitate an ID? It is an unfair practice that penalizes persons who choose to vote in person.
If you don't drive and don't know where your birth certificate is, it becomes a significant burden to meet governemental requirements for obtaining a photo ID.
