Voter Identification Policy - Political Parties and Stances

To preface, a voter identification law is a law that requires a person to show some form of identification in order to vote. The main point of contention, as it pertains to Voter Identification Laws, is that minorities are being affected disproportionately due to their lack of identification. Despite this contention, a majority of adults strongly favor requiring all voters to show government-issued photo identification to vote (76%). Republicans are considerably more likely than Democrats to favor photo identification requirements for voting (81% in favor compared with 30% of Democrats), even as majorities in both partisan groups favor this policy. Polling shows that the majority of Americans support some type of photo identification requirement with just 18% of Americans opposing it.
