Kevin Drum has a post on on the State of Indiana’s voter ID laws, which are the strictest voter ID laws in the country:
By a substantial margin, the Indiana residents most likely to possess photo ID turn out to be whites, the middle aged, and high-income voters. And while this is undoubtedly just a wild coincidence, these are also the three groups most like to vote for Republicans.
Overall, 91% of registered Republicans had photo IDs compared to only 83% of registered Democrats.
I don’t think regular readers will be surprised if I note that I’m not a Republican. But I have no problems at all with requiring valid ID before allowing people to vote. I’d like to know that the people voting have the right to vote, and are voting precisely as many times as they have that right.
Am I missing something here?
