The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
A strong, 62% majority of registered voters believe that Americans should have to provide photo identification when submitting a mail-in ballot, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Just 23% of respondents said voters should not be required to include their photo ID with mail-in ballots.
Responses in favor of a photo ID requirement include 78% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats, and 60% of independents. An equal number of white and Hispanic respondents favored the rule, as did 51% of black voters.
The strong majority follows a Just the News Daily Poll showing an even larger majority of voters — 77% — who favor photo ID requirements for in-person voting.
A record number of American voters cast their ballots by mail this year, due in large part to fears of the COVID-19 pandemic.
