Voter ID Laws, Like the One in Wisconsin, Disenfranchise Voters — Primarily Younger Voters, Voters of Color, and Elderly Voters

Wisconsin, and a number of other states, has a voter id law, currently undergoing a challenge in Wisconsin courts, that disenfranchises younger voters, voters of color, and elderly voters. Below are a number of articles and resources that explain the effects of voter ID laws from multiple points of view:

From The Nation, “Federal Court Strikes Down Discriminatory Wisconsin Voter ID Law”

From The World Socialist Website, “Supreme Court Rejects Challenge to Wisconsin Voter ID Law”

From The Atlantic, “How Voter ID Laws Are Being Used to Disenfranchise Minorities and the Poor”

From Wisconsin Public Radio, “Racial Inequality Tied to Income Inequality”
