Voter ID Works Again
There were problems in yesterday's election for sure. But requiring voters to present a valid ID was not one of them. Try as they might, proponents once again are unable to document cases of voters being disenfranchised because of the law. The law's requirement is so simple and so fundamental to our way of life. Yet, opponents cling to any little nugget of evidence, no matter how weak, to advocate removing this essential safeguard for maintaining the integrity of our voting process. Alas, the Supreme Court will decide the case once and for all before the end of its current term. Maybe we can go back to debating daylight savings time, another silly but favorite Hoosier pastime.
