Voter ID debate could change 2012 landscape
After raising the alarm in 2008 that voter fraud could tip the election to Democrats, Republicans are using their victories in last fall’s gubernatorial and state legislative contests to ensure that their fears of deception at the polls don’t materialize in future elections.
In key 2012 battleground states, Republican legislators and governors have been moving to change election laws in order to deter vote fraud, or Democrats say, to limit the number of voters.
Michael McDonald, expert on voter turnout at George Mason University said people without drivers’ licenses, disproportionately the poor, young and elderly, would be especially affected by photo ID requirements....
The Brennan Center for Justice has found that "although most Americans have government-issued photo ID, studies show that as many as 12% of eligible voters nationwide do not; the percentage is even higher for seniors, people of color, people with disabilities, low-income voters, and students". How do you feel photo ID legislation will affect voter turnout among PWD?
