The Supreme Court appears ready to uphold the nation's strictest requirement that voters show photo identification before casting a ballot.
During oral arguments today over a challenge to an Indiana law that is backed by Republicans as a prudent way to deter voter fraud, Justice Anthony Kennedy did not sound persuaded that the challengers had made their case.
While voicing some concern over some aspects of getting an ID, Kennedy seemed wary of overturning a law simply because it was "a minor inconvenience to a small percentage of voters."
More than 20 states require some form of identification at the polls.
Democrats and civil rights groups oppose the law as unconstitutional and call it a thinly veiled effort to discourage elderly, poor and minority voters.
