The only apparent problems (if they could be called that) were that a handful of people left their photo ID in their car. They were reminded of the photo ID requirement and were easily able to retrieve it. After the ACLU, League of Women Voters and NAACP ranted about the dangers of such laws, they were nowhere to be found at this election, helping voters to the polls. Instead, Governor Nikki Haley was the one who offered South Carolinians free rides to the DMV to get their IDs.
The next implementation of the voter ID law will be the March 19 special primary and May election to fill the 1st Congressional District vacancy created by former Congressman Tim Scott’s elevation to the U.S. Senate by appointment. All eyes will be on Charleston, but if Branchville is any evidence, it will also likely go on "without a hitch."
