This is... wow. For all of you who say/said Voter ID wouldn't disfranchise people? Those of you who pooh-poohed it, saying ID was easy to get?
And so in the backwash of all those kinds of arguments,
In 2011, Alabama lawmakers approved the state's voter ID law, making it illegal to vote in Alabama without a government-issued photo ID.
OK, fine. But now consider this.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency's website says their office at the Clarke County Courthouse is still open, but soon a lot of others nearby won't be. On Wednesday, the agency announced that it would close 31 offices throughout the state, leaving 29 counties without a place where 16-year-olds can take a driver's test, whether they pass on the first try or not.
Huh. Well of those 29 counties, it turns out a majority of them are predominantly poor, and predominantly black.
Yep. Do the math.
