Over the past few months we’ve covered many aspects of voter suppression, its targets and the threat it poses to our democracy. This week we’ll take a look at voter ID and the way voter suppression is being viewed in Great Britain, Europe’s most important democracy. It is undisputed that voter ID is the centerpiece of voter suppression laws and gets the headlines when the laws are being discussed. Voter ID is normally justified as necessary to prevent in-person voter fraud.

With current references to the modern voter suppression and the disproportionate impact of Voter ID laws on women, the League of Women Voters are continuing their historic fight to ensure the voting rights of all people. Rooted in the movement that secured the right to vote for women, the League has worked to foster civic engagement and enhance access to vote since they were founded in 1920. On its website, the League noted that over time its work has evolved from efforts to gain and foster women’s suffrage to ensuring that all eligible voters – particularly those from traditionally underrepresented or underserved communities, including first-time voters, non-college youth, new citizens, minorities, the elderly and low-income Americans – have the opportunity and the information to exercise their right to vote.
