    AFRO-AMERICANS DON’T HAVE BIRTH CERTIFICATE??

    And cannot photo Ids? Old Black women cannot get to the DMV but they can get to the polls?

    This statement is disrespective, demeaning, insulting to all Afro-Americans and minorities and is racist. Old white women has birth certificate and have no problem getting to the DMV?

    I have not heard one Afro-American say they do not have a birth certificate or photo ID.

    The only people who disenfranchised by photo Ids to vote are illegal aliens.
    9 times out of 10 if one does not have a birth certificate ior photo ID is not an American citizen.

    Lot's of older Americans don't have a birth certificate. When I was a kid, many Americans were born at home by a midwife. Especially in rural areas. Some places, the building where records were kept burned down or were hit with a natural disaster leaving people without either a birth certificate or a high school diploma unless they have the original.

    I know it's difficult for younger Americans to understand in this day and age of the Internet where everything posted is for always.

    •The 2001 Carter-Ford Commission on Election Reform found that between 6-11 percent of voting-age citizens lack driver’s license or alternate state-issued photo ID.

    •A 2007 Indiana survey found that roughly 13 percent of registered Indiana voters lack an Indiana driver’s license or an alternate Indiana-issued photo ID.

    •In a 2009 study in Indiana, Professors Matt Barreto, Stephen Nuño, and Gabriel Sanchez found that election restrictions like voter ID laws have the greatest impact on the elderly, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, those with less educational attainment and lower incomes. The professors found that of the citizen adult population, 81.4% of all white eligible adults had access to a driver’s license, whereas only 55.2% of black eligible adults had the same access. Indeed, study after study has similarly concluded that burdens to voting have a large and disparate impact on individuals with fewer resources, less education, smaller social networks, and those who are institutionally isolated.

    •The 2007 study, Voter ID Requirements and the Disenfranchisement of Latino, Black, and Asian Voters, based on exit polls from the 2006 elections in California, New Mexico, and Washington State, found that minority voters are less likely than whites to be able to present photo identification.


    •Many citizens who believe they have valid and sufficient photo IDs often do not. A national survey conducted after the November 2008 election found that 95% of respondents claimed to have a driver’s license, but 16% of those respondents lacked a license that was both current and valid. So of the of Americans who possess a photo ID, many lack proper identification that would enable to them to vote in elections under the new laws passed in Wisconsin, Kansas, Texas, South Carolina, and under legislation pending in many more states.
