On Friday Rachel mentioned this blog post by my colleague Zachary Roth and shared a bit of video of 101-year-old Lenora Carey who faces the prospect of not being able to vote unless she can get her paperwork taken care of to satisfy new voter ID requirements in Pennsylvania. The video was produced by Alex P. Kellogg and Evan Puschak, and as it happens, Evan is my cube farm neighbor so we enjoyed the virtual company of Ms. Carey (particularly her concern for the "cornerboys") for a few days while Evan edited the video.
The whole package is worth watching:
Earlier this year, PA republicans passed a law requiring all voters to show a picture I.D. at the polls. A state estimate found that over 750,000 Pennsylvanians don't have an I.D., and therefore are at risk of being disenfranshised. MSNBC's Lean Forward went to Philadelphia on August 3rd, to talk to a few of them.
