ACLU, NAACP Remind CT Voters: No Photo ID Required

The ACLU and NAACP have reminded voters in Connecticut that a photo ID is not required to vote in the state. The activist groups told Connecticut voters that they can instead present a credit card, utility bill, or simply sign a form attesting to their identity.

Andrew Schneider, executive director of the ACLU in Connecticut, said, “Many people don’t have government-issued photo identification and they need to know they can vote without it in Connecticut.”

Schneider added, “We’re also concerned about people who have driver’s licenses or passports but lost track of them in the hurricane.”

Scot X. Esdaile, president of the NAACP of Connecticut, said, “The people least likely to have government-issued photo identification are the poor, the young, and minorities.” Esdaile referred to the photo I.D. laws of Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin as “discriminatory” and urged that “the same discriminatory standard is not inadvertently applied in Connecticut.” 

The Supreme Court of the United States has determined that voter ID laws are constitutional.
