Survey: 73% of Black Voters Say Voter ID Is Necessary to ‘a Fair and Secure Election Process’

The survey, taken April 1 and 4 among 1,000 likely U.S. voters, asked respondents, “Are laws requiring voters to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote necessary to ‘a fair and secure election process’?”

The vast majority of voters across the board, 75 percent, said “yes,” it is necessary. A majority of Republicans and Democrats also held that sentiment — 89 percent and 65 percent, respectively.
