South Carolina To Try To Convince Court Its Voter ID Law Doesn’t Discriminate Against Blacks
A trial begins Monday on South Carolina’s voter ID law.
South Carolina’s law requires voters to present one of five forms of photo ID. Voters without those specific forms of ID are 20 percent more likely to be black, according to a Justice Department study.
In a letter, the Justice Department informed South Carolina it was blocking the voter ID law. It said the requirement could impede the voting rights of tens of thousands of people, noting that just over a third of the state’s registered minority voters did not have a driver’s license. The letter also said there was no evidence of voter fraud in South Carolina. The Justice Department declined further comment.
