Indiana Court Tosses Voter ID

Despite a significantly higher voter turnout last year than in most previous presidential elections, as well as Barack Obama’s narrowly carrying the state, the Indiana State Court of Appeals threw out the state’s voter identification law — a statute that had already passed muster with the U.S. Supreme Court — claiming the law wasn’t equally applied to those casting absentee ballots. The 3-0 ruling, made by a panel of judges appointed by Democrat governors, was blasted by Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels as “an act of judicial arrogance” and “transparently” partisan.

Predictably, state Democrat leaders hailed the ruling, claiming, even in the face of those increased turnout numbers, that the law requiring voters to present a form of identification bearing their photo “disenfranchised hundreds if not thousands of voters.” Heaven forbid, after all, that voters are who they say they are and vote only once.
