Today, one of the most significant debates around voting rights relates to voter identification laws. Proponents argue that voter ID laws can instill confidence in our democratic system by limiting voter fraud. Meanwhile, opponents say that voter ID laws place an undue burden on voters and reduce participation. They emphasize a disproportionate impact on minority groups and point to a long history of disenfranchisement of the same groups. Ideally, elections are both secure and accessible, and voter ID laws are one of many ways that the tension between security and access plays out.
