Crawford v. Marion County Election Board Decided

August 10, 2012

Whether Indiana's voter ID law unconstitutionally burdens the right to vote absent any evidence of voter fraud. DECIDED

Indiana has adopted the most onerous voter ID law in the nation, which has the effect of disenfranchising thousands of registered voters in the state who do not have, and, in many instances, cannot obtain the limited identification that Indiana will accept for voting. Although the state has defended the law as a means of deterring voter impersonation at the polls, there is no evidence of such fraud in Indiana, and it is already prohibited by various criminal statutes. The ACLU represents a group of plaintiffs who have challenged the law as an unconstitutional burden on the right to vote.
