The quiet passage of a voter-ID law in Rhode Island this month shocked many. The law, which will require all Rhode Island voters to show a form of identification before voting, has many Democrats worried about voter suppression, as they say minorities, students, and the poor and disabled will be most affected by the law. RI Gov. Lincoln Chaffee (I) says the law will ensure accuracy at the polls and keep voter fraud at bay.
