By 6-3 vote, the high court upholds Indiana law requiring voters to have photo ID.

Considered most important decision on voting rights since Bush v. Gore.

At least 20 states require ID at polls. Supporters claim the laws prevent fraud, while many Democrats and civil rights groups say the laws discourage voting by minorities, the poor and the elderly.

Plus: Harry Reid called requirements the court upheld “roadblocks to democracy.”
