BLOG.GILDADANIELS.COM: New Report Analyzes Experiences of Minority Voters in 2012 Election

For the first time, a new report released today by Advancement Project and Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, comprehensively analyzes the experience of voters of color in the 2012 election.Entitled Lining Up: Ensuring Equal Access to the Right to Vote and authored by University of Baltimore School of Law professor Gilda R. Daniels, the report highlights the extensive efforts of the two civil rights organizations, from the courtroom to the streets, to combat restrictive voter ID laws, challenges at the polls, deception and intimidation, “show-me-your-papers” proof-of-citizenship practices, unacceptably long lines, and the troubling use of provisional ballots.
