"Mississippi sails through voter ID test"
Mississippi’s law says voters can show one of 10 types of government-issued photo identification, including a driver’s license, passport, gun license or student ID from any accredited public or private college. For the past several months, people who lack an acceptable form of ID have been able to go to an election clerk’s office to get a free, state-issued voter ID card with name, address and photo. . . .Student IDs seem a little suspect and easy to forge.
Before the vote the Washington Post noted that not everyone was thinking that it would go smoothly.
Mississippi NAACP President Derrick Johnson said the civil rights group will pay attention Tuesday to ensure that no one is prevented from voting.
“We do understand that the state of the law has changed because of the Supreme Court decision, but the rights of voters have not changed,” Johnson said. . . .
