Andrew Gumbel considered the potential impact of new Voter ID laws on the November election. The Supreme Court upheld Arizona state legislative districts drawn by an independent commission, rejecting claims by Republican voters that slight population deviations favoring Democrats violated the Constitution. A panel of federal judges rejected an effort by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown to throw out the current district boundaries.
