Experts discuss the requirement of a valid form of ID before being allowed to vote in the election.
With government elections right around the corner, voters can now find one more issue to be divided on, the requirement of a valid form of ID before being allowed to cast your vote. Staunch advocates of Voter ID laws see the prerequisite as a way of preventing voter fraud and adding clarity to elections. Opponents on the other hand, see Voter ID laws as a way to disenfranchise elderly and minority voters. Host: Lark McCarthy. Guests Include: Laura Murphy, Director of the Washington Legislative offices of the ACLU, and Hans von Spakovsky, from the Justice Reform Initiative at the Heritage Foundation. David Becker, Director of Election Initiatives at Pew Center on the States.
