    Supreme Court upholds Arizona's photo ID law for elections

    Arizona voters will have to present identification at the polls on Nov. 7 after all.

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that Arizona can go ahead with requiring voters to present a photo ID, starting with next month's general election, as part of the Proposition 200 that voters passed in 2004. The ruling overturns an Oct. 5 decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which put the voter ID rules on hold this election cycle.

    The Supreme Court on Friday did not decide whether the new voter ID rules are constitutional. That decision is still pending in federal district court. advertisement
