McClatchy and WRAL have been mindlessly repeating hysteria from the Left about how legislation on Jones Street — requiring voters to actually PROVE who they are to participate on election day — is a throw-back to the days of dogs and fire hoses in Selma.
One of the most repeated falsehoods is that the voter ID legislation is aimed at disenfranchising college students. The good folks at Civitas have this covered:
[…] Maybe people will be surprised and maybe a few embarrassed to learn a lot of schools (if not all) require a valid ID, i.e. DMV, passport, military, to acquire a school ID UNCrequires an ID card for their students and staff. Here are the requirements for ECU andDuke and Elon. There is no doubt that every college in North Carolina requires a valid ID of every student on campus.
