Georgia's Photo Voter ID Upheld

The Georgia Democratic Party claimed that photo ID burdens the poor, the disabled, and minorities. Here in Mississippi, we've been told for years that voter ID would also be a hardship on elderly people. Could it be that Georgia's senior citizens are more resourceful than Mississippi's? ~~ SteveR

From the Associated Press:

ATLANTA — Georgia voters will have to present a photo ID when casting a ballot in Tuesday’s primary election.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Tom Campbell ruled today that Georgia law requires voters to present the photo IDs at polling precincts before voting in state elections.

Georgia’s Democrats sought to block the state from requiring photo IDs from voters in the primary, saying it places an undue burden on the poor, the disabled and minorities.

But Secretary of State Karen Handel predicted that changing the requirements days before the election would create “mass chaos” in Georgia’s precincts.
