...The Lawyers Committee also released a report titled, "Striving to #ProtectOurVote in 2016: A Snapshot of Election Protection 2016."
"Did voter suppression have an impact? Absolutely, voter suppression had an impact," said writer Ari Berman, who is the author of Give Us the Ballot. Berman spoke at the over-crowded conference.
"Look at Wisconsin. Trump won Wisconsin by 22,000 votes, but 300,000 registered voters didn't have strict forms of voter ID [ Or stayed home ! ]
. Clearly it had an impact. But even if voter suppression had no impact on the election, the fact that one party made it deliberately harder to vote was a huge national scandal," said Berman.
Within the pages of the Lawyers Committee's 30-page report on voting were details of the impact of new voter-ID laws and the gutting of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
The 2016 election was the first in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The election turned out exactly the way one would imagine it would: with numerous examples of local officials either misrepresenting the law or making it more difficult to cast a ballot.

...By Dec. 6, 2016 -- midway through the $3.5 million recount, paid for by the campaign of Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein -- the tweet was still being retweeted.
(Stein, by the way, earned a Pants on Fire
for her claim that Wisconsin uses outlawed voting machines
.)There’s no evidence that 300,000 Wisconsin voters were turned away from the polling places because they didn’t have photo identification
So, how many people were turned away in the 2016 presidential election for lack of photo ID?
In Wisconsin, according to the state Elections Commission, there were 2,975,313 votes cast for president in 2016 (prior to the recount), down 93,121 votes or 3 percent from 2012.
The Milwaukee election director said the drop of 41,000 included "some of the greatest declines" in areas "we projected would have the most trouble with voter ID requirements." He also acknowledged, however, that some of the drop-off had to do with the candidates and less enthusiasm for the candidates.
But no statistics are kept on the number of people who were turned away at polling locations on election day for lack of photo ID.In any case, it’s almost certain the figure is not 300,000.
