“In Texas, almost all non-voters have a photo ID — but few understand the voter identification rules”

Renée Cross, Jim Granato and Mark P. Jones for the Monkey Cage:

We conducted surveys in Texas earlier this year to investigate these arguments. Our study found that virtually all eligible non-voters — that is, people who could have but didn’t vote — possessed a valid photo ID. But not many really understood the photo ID regulations….

The survey asked our non-voters to listen to three statements and tell us which one most accurately described Texas’s photo ID requirements for voting in November 2016. Only one in five picked the right statement: 21 percent in Harris County and 18 percent in CD-23.
