A new report highlights the numerous ways “young voters of color” are affected by restrictive voting laws that have been adopted by Republicans in several states. The millennial generation (18 to 29 years of age) is significantly more racially diverse than prior generations. Thus, the report explains, laws that suppress the youth vote also suppress voters of color.
This is total BS.....You can't buy a six pack of beer without an ID....you can't sign up as an Obama -aide without ID...you can't enter the Democratic National Convention without photo ID....you can't get your ears pierced without ID....they're offered by many states for FREE if you don't drive.....this supresses FRAUD. I've been a poll judge in many municipalities...and I can tell you that this post is total BS.
p.s......I'm a person of color....even if you don't think so.
Hey Brad, while ostensibly getting a ID is a free, easy process, when you consider those segments of the population who do not have IDs, it's becomes evident just how effectively many thousands that do not already have valid IDs are being discriminated against by these laws supposedly aimed at preventing voter-fraud. People without acceptable IDs or the means to attain one are proportionately far more likely to be poor, old, married/divorced women, black, or Hispanic. Unlike your claim, even the cheapest identification certificates used to attain a ID are $20-25 in most states (i.e. NOT free.. even if the ID itself is). Similarly, many of these laws limit early voting, absentee voting, Sunday voting, and voting using college IDs-- all means by which those voting Democratic use at disproportionately higher rates. It is an excellent red herring (voter-fraud) by Republicans to accomplish the disenfranchisement of voters who typically vote against their party, however it is an obvious one to see through once you truly look. The easiest place to start is their alleged purpose: nullifying voter fraud--which, in America, is and has been essentially non-existent.
But don't just take my word at face value (that's my whole point after all), at least not directly... ;)
