You can add the Pennsylvania Constitution to your talking points: “Elections shall be free and equal; and no power, civil or military, shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage.” Surprisingly, I was unable to find anything in the U.S. Constitution that specifically mentions voting. The Supreme Court, as you probably know, upheld Indiana’s voter ID law, which is less restrictive than Pennsylvania’s. However,the Indiana Constitution has gaping holes in its voting provisions that justify the high court’s ruling. What this all means – or at least my read as an admitted layman – is that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is likely to strike down the Pennsylvania’s Voter ID law, and the U.S. Supreme Court won’t intervene.
