More People Vote When There’s Fewer Restrictions (Or Simply When There’s Three Times The Number of People)

January 31, 2009

movie_xfilesI assumed that by now some commenter would point this out to Patrick McIlheran —  not in the form of an analogy, Jay :-)  —   but I suppose I’ll do it.

The reason black turnout was higher in Georgia than in Mississippi was because Georgia allows no excuse early voting, whereas Mississippi does not (see here).   Indiana, Patrick’s other example, also allows no excuse early voting.   It was not because of restrictive voter ID laws in Georgia or Indiana, no matter how much Patrick wants to believe.
