Report Shows Western States Could Disenfranchise Latino Voters
AIR DATE: September 27, 2012
Millions of Latinos across the country could be deterred from voting due to voter purge, citizenship proof and ID laws. That's according to a new report from the civil rights group The Advancement Project. With the exception of Nevada, the report lists the entire Intermountain West as states with laws that could disenfranchise Latinos. We'll talk with the co-director of The Advancement Project about how the laws work and what states can do to make sure all eligible voters get to cast a ballot.
