Supremes Reject Challenge to Voter ID Law:

This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a facial challenge to Indiana's voter ID law, 6-3 The judgment of the Court was announced by Justice Stevens (!), joined by the Chief Justice and Justice Kennedy. Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito concurred in the judgment. Justices Souter, Breyer and Ginsburg dissented. The opinions are here. I expect Rick Hasen will be rounding up analysis and commentary at the Election Law Blog.

UPDATE: Oops. Didn't see Eugene just beat me to it.

MORE: Here are some initial thoughts from Rick Hasen, Lyle Denniston, and the AP.
