“Democrats sue over SC’s Social Security number requirement for voter registration”

Post & Courier:

The S.C. Democratic Party and two national Democratic campaign organizations filed a federal lawsuit Monday against the state Election Commission over a longstanding state law that requires prospective voters to submit their full Social Security number in order to register.
The groups argue the requirement has an unconstitutional chilling effect on potential voters who are concerned about sharing Social Security numbers, which is only mandated in four states nationwide. Most states only ask for the last four digits of voters’ Social Security numbers or other identifying information.
