Mandatory voter ID update

Posted By Rob Schofield On October 2, 2012 @ 1:51 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

With this morning’s encouraging decision by a Pennsylvania judge [1] to block the state’s repressive mandatory voter ID law, there has been a string of decisions and actions in this area that can be tough to keep track of. Fortunately, the good folks at the nonprofit news site Pro Publica have a story (“Everything You’ve Ever Wanted to Know About Voter ID Laws” [2]) that they’re keeping updated regularly.

For more information on efforts to impose such a law (and other unwarranted restrictions on voting) in North Carolina, visit the “Voting and Elections” section [3] of the website of the government reform group Democracy North Carolina.
