INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The Indiana Supreme Court has upheld the state's Voter ID law.

The court rejected the latest challenge and ruled the law as being constitutional.

The statute requires voters to present photo identification at the polling place if they vote in person.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says the law has been vigorously defended a number of times.

Zoeller says, “In the Voter ID case this has been over three years of a full defense both before the Supreme Court first and now before the Indiana Supreme Court.”

The League of Women Voters had sued, saying the law requires voters at "polls" to show ID, but doesn't have the same requirement for absentee voters.
