(WNS) – A federal appeals court panel decided Oct. 10 to uphold but delay enforcement of a South Carolina law requiring people to produce a government-issued photo ID before casting a vote.
The three-judge panel agreed unanimously that given the short amount of time before Election Day, the voter ID law may have “discriminatory effects” if implemented this year. The law will take effect in 2013.
Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told CitizenLink that people have plenty of time to get a photo ID.
