Study Shows That Voter ID Laws Do Keep Minorities From Voting

Excerpt: 

Although it was true that voter participation in [the 10 states with the strictest voter ID laws] did not take a dive overall, when the researchers examined the participation of different ethnic groups more closely, that’s where they saw a stark difference. States with the harshest voter ID laws saw a dip in participation from African American, Asian American and Hispanic American voters.

Moreover, the gap between white voter participation and minority voter participation is worse in states with strict voter ID laws. In other words, you can see a higher percentage of non-white voters going to the polls when the identification laws aren’t there to create an obstacle. ...

With the advent of voter ID measures, the gap between liberal and conservative voters jumped from 7.7 to 20.4 points, giving conservatives an overwhelming advantage at the polls in these states.

Hundreds of Texans May Have Voted Improperly

Excerpt: 

Texas election officials have acknowledged that hundreds of people were allowed to bypass the state's toughest-in-the-nation voter ID law and improperly cast ballots in the November presidential election by signing a sworn statement instead of showing a photo ID.

The chief election officers in two of the state's largest counties are now considering whether to refer cases to local prosecutors for potential perjury charges or violations of election law. Officials in many other areas say they will simply let the mistakes go, citing widespread confusion among poll workers and voters.

The Texas law requires voters to show one of seven approved forms of identification to cast ballots. It was softened in August to allow people without a driver's license or other photo ID to sign an affidavit declaring that they have an impediment to obtaining required identification.

Even after the affidavits were introduced, voters who possess an acceptable photo ID were still required to show it at the polls.
