The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Texas’ voter ID law “purposefully discriminatory” in her dissent against the Supreme Court’s decision to let the law be enforced in the upcoming November election. She was joined in dissent by Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

Contraceptive protection is something every woman must have access to, to control her own destiny. I certainly respect the belief of the Hobby Lobby owners. On the other hand, they have no constitutional right to foist that belief on the hundreds and hundreds of women who work for them who don’t share that belief. I had never seen the free exercise of religion clause interpreted in such a way.

Hobby Lobby makes clear that all persons—human and corporate, citizen and foreigner, resident and alien—enjoy the special religious free exercise protections of the [Religious Freedom Restoration Act].

Attorneys for two Guantanamo Bay detainees have filed an emergency application, invoking the Supreme Court’s controversial decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobbyfor a temporary restraining order to bar military officials from preventing inmates from participating in communal prayer during Ramadan.
