National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted March 13-14, 2012
By Rasmussen Reports

1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about laws requiring Americans to show photo identification at the polls before being allowed to vote?

2* Should voters be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote?

3* Do laws requiring someone to show photo identification before voting discriminate against minorities and low income Americans?

4* The U.S. Justice Department has decided to challenge the legality of Texas’ new law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls. Do you agree or disagree with the decision to challenge the legality of Texas’ new photo ID law?

5* What happens more often—that people are prevented from voting who should be allowed to vote or that people are allowed to vote who are not eligible to vote?
