Georgia SOS: "Minority voter participation up since Georgia photo ID implemented"

As opponents of the nation’s newest voter ID legislation argued in court this week the measure would unfairly disenfranchise minority voters, Georgia’s top election official told a local business publication that his state had witnessed an astronomical increase in minority participation since the tightening of its own election laws.

...“When you compare the ‘04 presidential election to ‘08, then the ‘06 governor’s election to 2010, the minority participation went up astronomically – Latino and African-American voters,” Kemp told Georgia Trend magazine. “We have the numbers to prove that. Stories about suppression – that’s just not the case. There are big increases.”
