Supreme Court Upholds North Dakota’s Voter ID Law

Sep 2017
The GOP is increasingly focused on ways to allow a minority of Americans (generally speaking, wealthier whites) to dominate the majority. Voter ID is part of that. They specifically set up voter ID rules with the idea of maximizing the discouragement of voters expected to vote for Democrats (in this case, Native Americans), with as little interference as possible with voters expected to vote for Republicans. That's why, for example, they generally make it so firearms IDs work as voter ID, but not student IDs, and why they never focus on absentee ballots (which, obviously, are a vastly more sane way to try to steal an election than in-person voter fraud, but which disproportionately go for Republicans so they must be treated as sacrosanct).
