In court, over voter ID…

The ACLU had wanted technical college IDs, out-of-state driver licenses and veterans photo IDs to be ruled as acceptable forms of ID for voting purposes. Judge Adelman refused this request on various grounds – stating that the out of state plaintiffs all had passports, there’s been no firm ruling on whether tech school ID’s are acceptable, and that the plaintiffs with military ID’s had all obtained other forms of identification. In essence, he ruled that the particular plaintiffs in the suit did not have standing because they had other means of voting – this does not help the people who either have not figured out how to obtain ID or who cannot manage it for one reason or another.
