Reprinted from the South Carolina Progressive Network:
Gov. Nikki Haley signed into law today a bill that will require all voters to have a photo ID in order to vote.
The SC Progressive Network and other voting rights advocates have been fighting this unnecessary law for four years, arguing that it is a solution in search of a problem.
