More than a dozen states have passed new laws designed to impede voters at every step of the electoral process through nefarious voter registration requirements.

Many of these laws are in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1985.
Of all of these barriers, the most pervasive threat to voting rights are new identification restrictions, which have so far passed in five states.
