About this Case

This case challenged the constitutionality of an Indiana law that requires voters to present either a state or federal photo identification in order to vote.  The question was whether the law unconstitutionally burdened the right to vote.  The Supreme Court upheld the law, concluding that the photo I.D. requirement within the state’s legitimate interests in preventing voter fraud and that any burden imposed on the right to vote was outweighed by these interests.
