Why Challenge Voter IDs?
The NAACP feels justified taking its case against voter ID laws to the United Nations.
Fox News reports that eight states have passed voter ID laws in the past year, and legislation is pending in 32 other states. This March, Pennsylvania became the latest state to enact a voter ID law. The American people overwhelmingly support voter ID laws, and the Supreme Court has upheld them.
An antiquated voter registration system is to blame for listing 1.8 million dead people as registered “active” voters in the United States, the Pew Center on the States concludes in a new study that shows millions of mistakes in voter rolls across the nation and recommends online sign-up.
The study found 24 million voter registrations, or one out of every eight, were no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. Beside the nearly 2 million dead potential voters, 12 million registrations had the wrong address and 2.75 million voters were registered in more than one state.
So, why would the NAACP go halfway across the globe to bash the United States for Voter I.D. laws at the U.N. Human Rights Council? The same council represented by 47 nations who are on the list of human rights abusers. Perhaps Voter IDs would make it more difficult to stuff the ballot box!
