With state and federal elections on the horizon, knowledge of your rights is critically important. This is especially true given the litany of laws passed recently by Republican-controlled statehouses. According to a study released today, nearly 1 million voters could be effectively disenfranchised by onerous voter identification laws passed in the last few years.
The Brennan Center for Justice has a comprehensive listing of recent changes to voter ID laws, among other resources related to voters’ rights. Regardless of your state, be sure to check if you’re still eligible to vote under these new laws. If not, you may need a new form of ID, and a call to your local representative to voice your displeasure may be in order.
