Photo: Voter ID Laws
Attorney General Eric Holder signaled last week that the Justice Department will be closely examining new state laws that require showing a photo ID before voting for potential racial bias, but voters nationwide overwhelmingly favor such a requirement and reject the idea that it is discriminatory.
Seventy percent (70%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe voters should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to cast their ballot.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% oppose this kind of requirement.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on December 18-19, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports.
