Supreme Court upholds photo ID law for voters in Indiana

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has ruled that states can require voters to produce photo identification without violating their constitutional rights. The decision validates Republican-inspired voter ID laws.

The court vote 6-3 to uphold Indiana`s strict photo ID requirement. Democrats and civil rights groups say the law would deter poor, older and minority voters from casting ballots.
