New voter laws, same old Jim Crow 06:53

Thirty-one states currently require voters to show ID to cast a vote.  

Those in support of these laws say the use of identification is a normal part of everyday life, but some civil liberty groups say this requirement targets those who cannot afford to get the necessary forms.
