Democrats lose their lawsuit. U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson has ruled that Virginia’s voter ID law is not “arbitrary and unfair” as claimed by the Democrats. From the Washington Post,
“Virginia has provided all of its citizens with an equal opportunity to participate in the electoral process,” with the availability of in-person voting, absentee voting, provisional ballots and free IDs, he wrote.
“Mindful that the Court’s mission is to judge not the wisdom of the Virginia voter ID law, but rather its constitutionality,” the law does not violate the Voting Rights Act or any amendments, he wrote.
