OK, those thinkers over at the Advance Arkansas Institute have really done it this time: today they’ve released a new policy brief on SB 2, the “voter ID” bill that is before the state Senate today. According to their press release, the proposal would “make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat.” All right, we’re listening…
The paper busts four of the biggest myths that are spread about voter ID laws, such as:
1. “Voter ID illegally adds new requirements to the state constitution’s list of voter qualifications.”
2. “Requiring voter ID is a ‘poll tax.’ “
3. “There are vast numbers of Arkansas voters without ID.”
4. “Requiring voter ID suppresses the vote.”
