Voter ID laws skew democracy in favor of white Republicans


The Washington Post:

The researchers analyzed turnout in recent elections — between 2008 and 2012 — in states that did and did not implement the strictest form of voter ID laws. They found that these laws consistently and significantly decreased turnout not just among traditionally Democratic-leaning groups, like blacks and Hispanics, but among Republican voters too.

Reminds me of those “science proves the obvious” bits that Popular Science used to run.
