Voter ID Law Signed by Virginia Governor

Virginian Pilot: “In tandem with his decision to let controversial voter identification legislation become law, Gov. Bob McDonnell is ordering state election officials to send every registered Virginia voter a new voter ID card….Issuing an executive order alongside those bills might also help Virginia’s law pass muster with the U.S. Justice Department. The federal agency has already blocked enforcement of more stringent photo ID statutes in South Carolina and Texas, southern states also covered by the U.S. Voting Rights Act, over concerns they could disenfranchise certain voters.”
