Jay DeLancy: ID Laws Boost Minority Voting in Some States

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Oct 2014 12:07 PM

Every time voter ID legislation goes to court, opponents "can't produce one person who would be disenfranchised," says Jay DeLancy, director of the Voter Integrity Project.

DeLancy was a guest Tuesday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

Despite studies to the contrary, DeLancy said that in the research he's read, minority voter turnout has actually increased in states with similar demographics, such as Illinois and Indiana, or Georgia and Mississippi.

"The state laws that require ID have stood up," DeLancy said. "They have been, the Supreme Court has agreed to let these laws play out as the new status quo in most states.

"I can't speak for Ohio for sure, but in most states the ID law has already gone through one election or more.

"In Texas it was three, and in North Carolina it was the primary, so that is the new status quo. So, the elections are more secure now than they were before these laws took effect, and that'll be the story this November also."
