Leftist activists have opposed voter ID laws with the lie that such laws are “voter suppression.” But analysis shows that five states that passed such laws have seen an increasing in voting, not any “suppression” of it.
The Daily Signal recently looked at the lies of the left-wing Brennan Center that has spent years attacking states with new voter laws.
DS noted that Arizona was targeted by Brennan, but after it passed its new election reform, the primary this year saw a higher turnout than ever.
In 2021, Democrats and pundits attacked election reform laws enacted in 19 states as attempts at “voter suppression.” The five states that appeared to come under the most attack were Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Florida, and Iowa—all of which saw boosted voter turnout so far in 2022 compared to the 2018 primaries.
As a rule, non-presidential elections and primary elections attract lower turnout than presidential elections or general elections.
But voter turnout was significantly higher in the 2022 primaries in Georgia, Texas, and Arizona and nominally higher in Florida than in the comparable 2018 primaries.
So new election laws in these states did a lousy job of suppressing the vote, if that’s what Republican lawmakers designed them to do.
Democrats lie about everything. Whatever they say, you can bet the opposite is reality.Commentary
