Voter identification laws were unevenly implemented within states.

In the states that only ask first-time voters to show any form of identification (including a letter addressed to them), one-quarter of all voters stated they would not have been allowed to vote had they not produced a photo ID.

African Americans and Hispanics were asked to show “picture ID” more often than Whites – 70% for African Americans, 65% for Hispanics, and 51% for Whites.
