And the New York Times, last month:
"At first blush, voter ID laws may not seem so unreasonable. But the fact is, a substantial number of Americans who are registered to vote do not have official government photo IDs. That is particularly true of poor people, racial minorities, the elderly, and the disabled — many of whom do not drive and do not have drivers’ licenses.
The state claims it wants to deter vote fraud by ensuring that no one impersonates a registered voter at the polls. But there is no evidence of this occurring in Indiana. No one in the state has ever been prosecuted for in-person voter fraud."
food for thought, and it's bitter fruit.
