The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School said that one in 10 Americans lack the necessary government-issued photo IDs that now are required in 10 states: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.
The Center also reports that about:
- one-quarter of African Americans, 16 percent of Hispanics and 18 percent of Americans over age 65 do not have the type of ID that the voting laws require;
- 10 million eligible voters live more than 10 miles from the nearest full-time state ID-issuing office;
- 500,000 of them do not have access to a vehicle, and most live in rural areas with limited public transportation.
