ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Crawford versus Marion County Election Board rejecting a facial challenge to the voter identification (ID) law in Indiana. The law requires voters to show a photo ID before being allowed to vote. The court allowed an individual voter to challenge the law only if the said voter demonstrated a serious impingement on his or her right to vote. According to the author, the appointment of Chief Justice John Roberts marked a change in the stance of the court.
