Georgia Judge Says No to Photo ID for Voting

78% of Georgia Voters Say Yes

Wednesday, September 20, 2006

A Georgia state judge ruled that a new state law requiring voters to show photo ID is a violation of the state constitution. State officials have vowed to appeal the decision and will do so with the strong support of voters throughout Georgia. A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted last month found that 78% of voters favor proposals requiring voters to show photo ID before casting a vote. That figure includes support from 92% of Republicans, 58% of Democrats, and 81% of those not affiliated with either major party.
