In this election year, voter identification laws have been a hot-button issue. Millions will head to the polls in November. In some states like Rhode Island and New Hampshire, you need a photo I.D. in order to vote. Some worry the laws make voting harder for minorities and elderly voters.

However, in last week's primary in Worcester, MA, where no voter I.D. law exists, some voters were already having problems. Poll workers were accused of voter intimidation and voter suppression — serious charges that could be a troubling sign for November, if true.
