Mississippi jumps on voter ID bandwagon

Doug Chapin addresses trend in voter ID requirements.

The trend toward more stringent laws affecting voter IDs and other election issues isn't surprising, said Doug Chapin, an elections expert at the University of Minnesota. "It's really more about the 2010 election," Chapin said. "It has as much to do with the fact that there are so many new Republican legislatures and governors across the country. Republicans generally tend to favor voter ID.".
