We need a photo ID to buy liquor or fly on an airplane, so what’s the big deal about needing one to vote? Don’t we need to stop voter fraud? Actually voter ID is a solution in search of a problem, according to Tova Andrea Wang, author of a new book: The Politics of Voter Suppression: Defending and Expanding Americans Right to Vote. Wang explains that the new efforts are part of a long history of the intentional suppression of certain segments of American society. Voting is a right, not a privilege. She urges us to not let them scare you, it is still easy to exercise that right. And we must keep it easy, to keep America a republic.
