Liberal groups and the Department of Justice continue to maintain that voter ID requirements are part of a deliberate effort to “suppress the votes” of minority groups and others, The Heritage Foundation’s Hans Von Spakovsky explains in an video exposé on groups that oppose election integrity laws.

Heritage’s Rob Bluey explains more:
Liberals have long trotted out false arguments about voter ID laws, claiming they suppress the vote among those individuals who do not have photo identification. But a 2008 U.S. Supreme Court case upholding Indiana’s voter ID law revealed there was no such hardship. Opponents of the law were unable to produce a single plaintiff who could plausibly claim inability to get a photo ID. In addition, states with longstanding voter ID laws, such as Georgia and Indiana, have actually experienced an increase in turnout of minority voters.
What do you think needs to be done to ensure the integrity of our elections?
