Revision as of 19:15, 22 November 2012

In light of this edit made by Mr. Schlafly, I want to examine whether early voting laws were passed by liberals to avoid the strictures of voter ID legislation.

(Classification of states as strict/non-strict photo/non-photo ID is from [1]

Strict Photo ID

In effect in 2012

Georgia

HB 244 in the 2005-06 session introduced both voter ID and no-excuse absentee balloting. The Georgia House passed HB 224 along party lines: Republicans voting yes, Democrats voting no, with the following exceptions: Johnny Floyd (R-147th), Mark Hatfield (R-177th), Penny Houston (R-170th) voted No; Keith Heard (D-114th), Greg Morris (D-155th) voted Yes.

Attorneys for the state used the existence of no-excuse absentee voting (without having to present photo ID) as an argument that no eligible voters would be disenfranchised as a result of voter ID.[1]

Indiana

Kansas

As implemented under the S.A.F.E. Act, Kansas's voter ID system requires absentee and early voters to produce identification.[2] Kris Kobach, the main proponent of the S.A.F.E. Act, bragged about its comprehensiveness in a Wall Street Journal editorial.[3]
