Election fraud is a problem. With only 82 days remaining until the election, time is of the essence to ensure the integrity of the results.
Yesterday saw an important victory in the battle to require voters to present photo ID as a means to prevent fraud. A Pennsylvania district court judge denied an injunction to stop the state’s new voter ID law from going into effect.
The challengers claimed that mandating photo IDs at the voting booth would disenfranchise or severely burden voters. The judged called this claim bunk and, according to The Heritage Foundation’s Elizabeth Garvey ,“flatly rejected the challengers’ attempt to ‘inflate the numbers’ of disenfranchised voters.”
This is a major victory for election integrity. Similar laws were upheld in Indiana and Georgia, where “courts threw out the opinions of the alleged experts hired by the plaintiffs as ‘not credible.’”
Do you think this turn in the battle for election integrity is encouraging?
