The Supreme Court's decision is disappointing. The Court's decision today places obstacles to the fundamental rights of American citizens–especially the poor, the elderly, and individuals with disabilities–to participate in the electoral process. Having American citizens pay for underlying documents needed for an identification card and travel to distant motor vehicle locations for processing hinders–and diminishes–their right to vote.
The right to vote is a foundation of our democracy. American citizens who wish to vote must be able to do so.
