How Many States Have Some Form Of the Law?

Thirty-four states have passed laws requiring some sort of identification from voters, but only 31 of them are in effect, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Courts have struck down voter ID laws in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and a law passed in North Carolina won't take effect until 2016. (Photo: Mike Agliolo/Corbis)
