The last several years these new voter ID laws have often made headlines. Most notably because they tend to target voters that tend to vote for Democrats. And since the Supreme Court overturned parts of the Voting Rights Act, Republican controlled states have wasted no time passing new laws that seek to rig elections to favor Republican candidates.
And spare me this nonsense about “voter fraud.” It hardly exists. In the extremely rare cases that it does, it seems that Republican voters are often the ones busted for it.
But these moves to require a government issued ID before someone is allowed to vote are just smokescreens Republicans are using to try to prevent certain voters that don’t often vote for them from being able to vote at all.
