South Carolina's new voter ID law just one of many in a GOP v. Dem war

Do it here, but not without your ID.

We've talked about how South Carolina's new law requires you to have a valid photo ID to vote in the  next election, but what we haven't talked about much is how this is a battle playing out across the nation.

Though voter ID laws have been floating around in state legislatures for some time, they've recently reached a tipping point, with Republicans saying it's a vital move to protect the integrity of the system and Democrats saying it's a trampling of constitutional rights and a way to disenfranchise the old, young, and minorities. 

With that thought in mind, The New York Times has done a nice feature that also talks a good bit about South Carolina's successful effort; head on over here to take a read.
