More than 35 states have passed requirements that voters present specific documentation or photo ID when voting. In near equal numbers, liberal activist judges have done their best to block enforcement of these statutes. Republicans in Nebraska are now trying to pass an amendment to the state Constitution that would require presentation of photo ID at the polls. Liberal groups are already calling it unnecessary and hollering that it would disenfranchise people without IDs. Except the state provides free photo IDs. So, once again, the anti-vote integrity crowd peddles disinformation about a law that should be acceptable to everyone who doesn’t want to cheat.
