The recent ruling by the supreme court will likely see many states and their respective Republican Parties introducing legislation to require more voter ID laws just like Indiana. While I can see the need for tightening registration procedures, it is more necessary to consider the implications voter ID laws have in contrast to Vote-By Mail and Early Voting Centers.
Signature Verification and Voter Registration cards are the method we use in polling places to limit voter impersonation, or Ghost Voting and the like. However, Absentee systems, or worse yet Vote-By Mail systems, use exactly this same method, and are way easier to subvert in large “electioneering” sized voting fraud schemes.
Anyway, here’s another post from February regarding more specific hurdles currently faced in Indiana.
