Strict voter-id laws seem to trip up transgender voters
Strict voter-id laws in many states may seriously impact transgender voters, according to a study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA law school, link.
The numbers for Virginia were rather shocking.
There seem to be problems when the picture doesn’t match the gender after transition, and the person hasn’t replace the ID. I’m not sure why many voters would have trouble replacing these photos.
But there are also problems with actually recording the gender change on official state records according to voter id laws.
