Well, that claim is certainly disproved by the experience in the state of Georgia, which saw its law upheld under the Voting Rights Act.
More than a quarter million African American voters in Georgia have already cast ballots for the November elections, the highest participation rate ever recorded by the secretary of state’s office.
According to state elections officials, 780,545 Georgians, of which 33 percent were black, had already voted in the presidential contest as of Friday.
Should the preliminary rate of participation remain steady through the close of polling on November 6, this year’s election will be recorded as the single largest black voter turn out event in state history.
Let you think this is a fluke, consider that the law was passed in 2007 and was in effect for the 2008 election -- which also saw a record turnout by black voters. Now the records are being broken again. I guess the requirement of a photo ID isn't so disenfranchising after all!
