Today's Supreme Court ruling upholding Indiana's voter identification law is likely to renew debate over whether America's elections are as fair as they should be.

In the court's 6-to-3 decision, the justices kept in a place a state law requiring voters to show identification at the polls—which critics say stymies the poor and minorities. Supporters say these laws help combat voter fraud.

This is hardly the first time voter ID laws have come into question. Controversy over Georgia's strict voting law has held up nominations to fill vacancies on the Federal Election Commission.
