8. That's exactly right, and that is why
that federal judge struck down Georgia's Voter ID measure. The judge ruled it was tantamount to an unconstitutional poll tax.

Even after Georgia lawmakers revised the measure and said the IDs would be free of charge to people who need them, the judge said it was not enough to make the IDs free, and they needed to do some more work to make it fair to the voters.
