(Worthy News) - Four out of five Americans approve of laws allowing voters to cast ballots early and mandating photo identification at the polls, a new survey from Gallup research shows.
According to the new poll, 80 percent of those questioned said they favor the ability to vote early and laws that require voters to prove their identity before they head into the booth.
On the issue of voter identification, 95 percent of Republicans polled favored the law -- compared with just 63 percent of Democrats. The GOP has traditionally been more supportive of voter ID laws, claiming they prevent voter fraud. Some Democrats, though, oppose them and argue that they discourage some minority voters from participating. [ Source ]
