Pro-Hispanic Group Promotes Voter ID Graphic

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 03:45 PM

A Washington Post article and graphic outlining where voters can cast ballots without being asked for a photo ID is being promoted by a pro-amnesty Hispanic activist group to remind people where they can vote.

The National Council of La Raza joined in re-tweeting the link nationally to the Post's story after the Chicago chapter of Asian Americans Advocating Justice initially posted it on Twitter, reports The Daily Caller.

According to the first message, the Chicago group reminded voters that Illinois does not require a voter ID to cast a ballot:

"Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election," wrote The Post’s Aaron Blake in The Post's "The Fix" section.

"Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful [sic] graphic from the Post’s graphics team." 

As the election approaches, the voter ID controversy is heating up nationwide. Texas is now allowed to enforce its photo ID law at the polls, the Supreme Court ruled earlier this month, and in North Carolina, the law is getting a soft rollout, with voters not being forced to present identification.

However, voters in North Carolina will only be able to cast ballots in the precincts they are assigned, not at any polling place they choose.

Voter laws have also been knocked down in Wisconsin and in Arkansas, with Wisconsin's Democratic congressional delegation members saying they are still worried that voters could find problems at the polls.

However, voter ID requirements do not target the most common types of voter fraud, which occurs with absentee ballots, election officials say. Instead, they target impersonation fraud, which University of California-Irvine Professor Rick Hasen said is "negligible."
