Michigan Supreme Court OK's Voter ID Law
July 19 - Yesterday, the Michigan Supreme Court issued an advisory opinion supporting the constitutionality of MCL 168.523, which requires in-person voters to either present identification or to sign an affidavit stating that they have none. The law has been on the books in some form since 1997, but the Secretary of State never enforced it due to an opinion issued by the state Attorney General, who claimed the law was unconstitutional. It is unclear whether officials will now begin enforcing the law, although this story makes it sound more likely than not.
