What does it take to vote in the November election?
July 8, 2012 1:12 PM   Subscribe

Is there an updated list of all the new Voter ID laws in various states in America?

There have been a bunch of changes to state laws that put new requirements in front of voters. Links to individual supervisor of elections websites where the new requirements are outlined would be great. I have seen conflicting news reports of what it will take to vote in certain states in the presidential election in November, so I would like to be able to send friends and family definitive information for their states, and also be aware of changes in other states.

Link to Vote411.org, which allows you to look at eligibility and ID requirements state by state. Each state's page appears to have a link to its election commission Web site.

The Obama campaign has Gottavote.org, which is pretty good for that sort of thing. You don't have to give them any information or anything to use it.

The Brennan Center has excellent resources on voter ID laws, including a report of all changes this year.
