MS Supreme Court’s ballot initiative ruling could open challenges for voter ID law

Mississippi’s voter ID law may be open to legal challenge after the state Supreme Court ruled May 14 to nullify the state’s ballot initiative process that allowed voters to amend the state constitution. The 6-3 ruling came as part of the court’s decision to overturn the state’s voter-backed medical marijuana program due to a flaw in the state’s Constitution. The flaw is a wording error from when the state had five U.S. Congressional districts instead of its current four. Josiah Coleman. Lee O. Sanderlin, Mississippi Clarion Ledger.
