What the Court did: Rejecting claims by Democrats and various leftist groups, the Court upheld Indiana’s strict election law. That law mandates photo IDs to cast ballots, thereby to root out election fraud.
What it means: A significant number of states will follow Indiana’s lead and will adopt strict anti-fraud voter laws. Over the long haul that inevitably will result in fewer Democrats holding public offices around the country.
Winners: People who believe in the rule of law. Federalism/states’ rights advocates. Republicans.
