In light of that, if I had to guess, whether Simpson does it or the Supreme Court ultimately does it, the voter ID law won't be in effect for the November election.
If that happens, and admittedly, that's a lot of ifs, it will probably be for the best. The court will have seen to it that no one's right to vote was denied while also respecting the General Assembly's right to regulate the way voting takes place. In addition, the court will have braced the public for the changes that are to come.
I don't think you can ask our high court to do better under the circumstances.
