vol 125 No. 11

Suspect nuns: About 12 nuns in their 80s and 90s were turned away from the polls in South Bend, Indiana, on May 6 because they don't have state or federal identification bearing a photograph. Indiana's photo ID law is the strictest in the country. It was challenged by the state's division of the American Civil Liberties Union, but the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the law in a decision issued shortly before Indiana's presidential primary (AP).
