Voter Fraud Accusations: Another Republican Ploy

Along with gerrymandering, claims that voter fraud is rampant where photo IDs are not required is an obvious ploy to suppress Democratic voters. Republican political consultant, Carter Wrenn, unabashedly states that efforts requiring voter photo IDs and restricting early voting are designed to minimize the number of votes being cast by Democrats. In short, the Voting Rights Act is considered an a anathema by the extreme right.

The Week: The battle over voter ID-

My Comment: Such backwardness will boomerang. One possible effect would likely be a renewal of the National ID Card movement(which would take the voter ID just one step further).
