NCSL Presentation

I'm posting this as much to see if I know how as I am to follow up on my post last week.

Jennie Bowser from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) did give me to post her presentation.  I've pulled out the key slides below that show how Voter ID legislation has gone over the years.

By the way, "Strict Photo ID," is NCSL's phrase but is meant to imply that there isn't an alternative to the ID.  In some states, voters without an ID can sign an affidavit instead.

I'm going to use these slides during election worker training.  I think it's worth pointing out that the Voter ID changes in Kansas are part of a nationwide trend.
