SCDP Responds To Voter ID Ruling



South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, released the following statement responding to the Federal Court upholding the South Carolina Voter ID law:

I am disappointed in the court’s decision to uphold South Carolina’s Voter ID law. The South Carolina Democratic Party strongly disagrees with the court’s opinion and is hopeful that the United States Supreme Court will resolve the differences between various Voter ID cases around the country.

Fortunately, this decision does not go into affect until after the 2012 election so no photo ID is necessary for the November 6 general election.

It’s time for this state to find solutions to real problems. Republicans Nikki Haley, John Courson, and Joan Brady have spent millions in taxpayer funds on this cure in search of a disease. Voters will have an opportunity this November to voice their disapproval and defeat Courson and Brady.
