Statement of Governor Sonny Perdue Regarding U.S. Supreme Court Photo ID Ruling

Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s denial of the Plaintiffs’ petition for a writ of certiorari in Common Cause v. Georgia, which concludes the federal lawsuit:

“The Supreme Court’s decision today is a victory for ensuring fair elections. It properly defers to Georgia’s policy makers, and it recognizes that the Voter ID Act we passed in 2006 does not impede the right to vote. By rejecting the Plaintiffs’ appeal, the highest court in the United States rejected a key argument still being argued in a state court lawsuit filed against Georgia’s elected officials by the Democratic Party of Georgia. I am optimistic that the state courts will agree with the Supreme Court and protect the integrity of the voting process.”
