Freedom To Vote

This episode focuses on legislative efforts in Georgia and Texas to require voters to present photo IDs, though such rules would create barriers for low-income, elderly and disabled people, and disenfranchise millions. While supporters of photo IDs say the goal is to eliminate voter impersonation, such fraud is extremely rare. "Freedom to Vote" also looks at the sacrifices that have been made in our nation's history to ensure that all have equal access to the ballot box.
