Alice in Political Land: Facts and Fantasy – Will New Voting Laws Determine the Fall Election?

Many states are passing new requirements for voting. Are they preventing fraud or disenfranchising voters? Some estimate that 20  million voters could lose their right to vote. Andrea Kaminski, Executive Director of the Wisconsin League of Women Voters claims that the laws are unfair, unnecessary and too expensive for taxpayers. They have sued to stop the law. See
The Florida League of Women Voters has also sued. Moreover, for the first time in decades, they will not longer undertake voter  registration drives because the Florida law is so confusing people could inadvertently commit a felony. (this is a national LWV website for voters.)
