ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's oft-challenged law that requires voters to show photo identification before they cast their ballots has survived another legal battle.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Tom Campbell on Tuesday ruled that the law does not violate Georgia's constitution.

Critics have long tried to block the law, claiming it places an undue burden on poor, disabled people and minorities.

But supporters say it's needed to combat voter fraud. Secretary of State Brian Kemp says in a statement Tuesday that the ruling "is a victory for the integrity of the state's elections process."
