Just one year after implementing a controversial voter ID requirement, Alabama announced that it'll close 31 DMV offices -- leaving 29 counties without a single place to get a driver's license, the most common form of voter ID that's required to vote under the new law.

Here's the worst part: no county where Black voters are 75% or more of those registered will still have a DMV (or easy access to IDs) if this change goes through. Voter ID laws are already controversial for their disproportionate impact on voters of color, and this only makes it worse.

We can't allow these racialized attacks on the right to vote in 2015. Contact Governor Robert Bentley and tell him -- nobody should lose their right to vote because they can't get a photo ID.
