Effects of Voter ID Law

Friday, 6 December 2013 | A Public Affair

In November, the Voter ID trial was taking place in Milwaukee. So what happened in the trial and what could it mean for voting? Find out on this edition of A Public Affair!

On Tuesday December 3rd, our host Carousel Bayrd was joined by Leigh Chapmen  and Jeremy Rosen two of the attorneys that are arguing against the constitutionality and legality of the Voter ID law.

Chapmen and Rosen reviewed the law and discussed how difficult it is to get an ID and who doesn’t have one. Bayrdf, Chapmen and Rosen also explained the legal arguments against the law – such as how the disproportionate difficulty for minorities and the homeless to access ID puts an undue burden on the constitutional right to vote.
