Mississippi enacted a new stricter voter ID law to be effective in 2014, but it will provide free transportation to government offices where voters will be able to get them for free. Once again, the burden falls hardest on African‐American and poor voters who may be intimidated by the new law. It also imposes an additional step the elderly, poor, and minorities must take before they can exercise their Constitutional right to vote. Remember, these are people who are probably working more than one job to make ends meet or taking care of children and so often feel left out of the system, with little hope of advancement. Shouldn’t we be making voting easier for them, not harder?
