Did the suppression of voter ID laws aid President Obama’s victory over Mitt Romney?
Obama did not win a single state that fully requires photo IDs, although he did win in four states that require non-photo identification – Washington, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia. Those states accept as legitimate identification current utility bills, bank statements and paychecks.
Obama won in New Hampshire, which just enacted a new Voter ID law that eventually will require photo identification. That law is not being fully implemented until September 2013.
