I am in two minds about this, I agree with the decision because it mostly is written towards Hispanic people but on the other hand I believe in people showing their ID before being allowed to vote.
Here every person who is registered in the basic governmental registry (which in theory is everyone) gets their voter card sent to the place they are registered at (if you move you are by law mandated to make this known to the city you are departing from and registering in the city you move to, if you stay within a city you just give your new address). With this voter card and you ID you go to a voting location close to you and vote. It is that simple, no illegals need apply, they cannot vote. Registered aliens who have a permit to live in the Netherlands also get this card in local elections but from what I remember not in national elections.
Voter suppression should be fought with all legal means and with logical and humane intentions, and not with partisan designs to make it harder or impossible for supporters of the opposing side to vote.

Its the same gap in logic that Ohio Secretary of State John Husted had. He argued that the dead should be removed from voter rolls and he based that determination on whether or not a person has voted in x number of elections; not on any objective criteria such as bumping the list of registrants against a list of death certificates. He basically wanted to declare a person dead to remove them from the voter rolls without actually verifying that they are dead.
I know that people, Republicans in-particular, try to frame this debate as a battle between those who want illegal immigrants or the dead to cast ballots and those who don't, but thats a false dichotomy. Their refusal to use objective criteria and facts to clean up the rolls reveals their efforts as thinly veiled attempts at disenfranchisement. That is what this debate is about.
