Recent years have seen a growing number of states adopt stricter voter identification laws, justifying these new laws as guarding against voter fraud.

In new research Todd Donovan and Shaun Bowler find that in states without voter ID laws, Democrats are generally confident that elections are fair while Republicans are not, and that the reverse is true in states with strict voter ID laws.
