The justices heard arguments this morning on whether the law poses an unnecessary threat to the right to vote. They aggressively questioned whether the law is necessary right now and whether it still guarantees the right to vote.
With the November 6th presidential election looming, there's no word on when they'll decide. The 6-month-old law was championed by Republicans over the objections of Democrats and is part of the heated election-year political rhetoric in the presidential swing state.
Six justices heard the case: three Democrats and three Republicans. A 3-3 deadlock allows the law to stand. A lower court refused to halt it from taking effect.
