STUDY: Voter ID Could Disenfranchise Close To 700,000 Youth Of Color


A new study by the Black Youth Project shows that “young people of color possess photo IDs at lower rates than whites and will be “disproportionately demobilized by the recent spate of photo ID laws.” The study estimates that turnout amount young people of color will be reduced by between 538,000 and 696,000 in the states that have passed voter ID laws.
