Study: Many Could Face Obstacles in Voter ID Laws : NPR
A new report by the Brennan Center for Justice finds that more than 10 million potential voters in states that require photo ID at the polls live more than 10 miles from offices that issue such ID. Nearly 500,000 of these voters don’t have access to a car or other vehicle.
Many of these people presumably already have a photo ID, but for those who don’t, the new laws pose a special challenge, according to the Brennan center.
The report, which details the obstacles to getting government-issued photo ID, is the latest volley in the battle over the impact of new state voting laws.
