Ohio Voter ID Case Settled:

Ohio papers, including the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Cincinnati Enquirer are reporting that the lawsuit over Ohio's new Voter ID rules has been settled, at least in regard to next Tuesday's election. According to these reports, it seems the rules will be somewhat loosened so as to allow voters without photo ID's to provide other means of identification (such as the last four digits of their social security number). Here is the consent order, and here is some initial commentary from Ohio State's Dan Tokaji.
