Most Still Favor Voter ID Laws

Missouri held its first election this week after enacting voter identification laws, and officials say it went smoothly. Most voters continue to favor such laws, though slightly more now believe they may be discriminatory.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of Likely U.S. Voters still think voters should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote. Just 25% disagree. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
