Supreme Court vs. Indiana

Early next year, the Supreme Court will decide whether Indiana's voter ID laws discriminate against poor and minority residents.

Election law experts had urged the court to take the Indiana case to instruct courts on how to weigh claims of voter fraud versus those of disenfranchisement. "The court better resolve this question before ballots start getting counted next fall," said Stanford University law professor Pamela Karlan.

The court is expected to issue a decision by late June, in time for the November general election.
