Mississippi will use its voter ID law for the first time in Tuesday’s primary election.

“People will be required to show a driver’s license or other government-issued photo identification at the polls during the Republican and Democratic primaries for U.S. House and Senate.”

There will be much scrutiny to see who is being kept from the polls.

Mississippi NAACP president Derrick Johnson said the civil rights group will pay attention Tuesday to ensure no one is prevented from voting.

“We do understand that the state of the law has changed because of the Supreme Court decision, but the rights of voters have not changed,” Johnson said.

    Mississippi’s voter disenfranchisement ignores the fact that GWB’s HAVA requires everyone to provide a certified US birth certificate or a US Govt ID requiring a Certified BC with proof of address, lease or mortgage statement, bank accounts, etc. GOP officials already admitted their voter ID is republiklan scam to disenfranchise legacy minorities including women. The Mississippi GOP know they can’t win a fair election where all US Citizens vote.
