Project 21’s LeBon Discusses Logic of, Black Support for Voter ID

Dispelling myths about voter identification laws and civil rights concerns, Project 21 co-chairman Cherylyn Harley LeBon tells “D.C. Breakdown” host Angela Rae that — contrary to popular liberal belief — the majority of black Americans actually support a verification of identity at polling places before ballots are given to prospective voters.  This majority support for state-level voter ID laws was found in a poll that also showed the same blacks surveyed supported President Obama strongly on his other agenda items such as economic and health care policy.

On the 6/17/14 edition of this Soul of the South network program, Cherylyn pointed out the logical need for ID for more than just voting, as well as the inherent and real threat to the democratic process from “ghost voters” when there are no simple safeguards in place to safeguard balloting.
