VotingPost submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) is working to address how voter identification laws that may be adversely impacting transgender people at the polls.

According to NCTE, nearly 20 states have passed restrictive measures that make it difficult for transgender people to meet identification requirements – essentially disenfranchising them.

NCTE is collecting stories to elevate this problem – share your story now.
