If a fee is charged for ID to vote, it’s a poll tax


This is a poll tax, pure and simple:

Wisconsin Republicans recently passed a controversial bill requiring that voters provide valid photo identification at the polls. Those IDs are free, if you ask—if you don’t, they’re $28. And that Department of Transportation memo recommending that staffers not tell applicants that state IDs are free? Just a coincidence that it was authored by a former Republican staffer!
