The ACLU of Mississippi has joined with the Mississippi NAACP, Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, the Steps Coalition and Mississippians United Against Voter ID to gather 1 million signatures telling U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to reject the state's voter identification requirement.
Initiative 27, which requires voters to present government-issued ID at the polls, was approved during the Nov. 8 general election. The measure is unnecessary and could lead to tens of thousands of Mississippians being stripped of their constitutional right to vote.
Help us defeat the plan by sending Holder a postcard, urging him to reject voter ID in Mississippi.
