Voter ID Laws in Primary States

18 MINS

Guest: Adam Gitlin, Counsel for the Democracy Program of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University’s School of Law  It’s Super Tuesday and people voting in several states holding primary elections today are encountering new rules that require they show a photo ID or prove they’re an American citizen.  More than 30 states now require some form of identification to vote, many of which have become stricter since the last presidential election. Today in Texas, where the most primary delegates are up for grabs, voters for the first time are being asked to prove their identity with either a driver license, a military ID card, a US passport, a certificate of US citizenship or a license to carry a concealed handgun. A federal court found some 600-thousand registered Texas voters don’t have the required ID to cast a ballot.
