ABSTRACT
Discusses the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), a 2002 federal law which requires states to create voter databases that will help to screen out mistaken or ineligible ballots. Claim that Republican officials in several states are exploiting HAVA's voter-identification requirements to disenfranchise Democratic voters; Percent of Americans who lack photographic identification, who tend to be urban and Democratic; Compromise of law makers, requiring identification for newly registered voters only, and providing a provisional ballot to voters who show up in the wrong precinct; Differences in acceptable identification depending on the state, some more restrictive than permitted forms of identification under HAVA; Speculation that some identification rules are designed to help Republicans in key races of the 2004 elections.
