Hosemann, staff trying to avoid problems with Justice over voter ID

JACKSON — Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says he’s trying to answer all questions that might come up as Mississippi seeks federal approval for its proposed voter ID law.
Republican Hosemann tells The Associated Press he and his staff are reviewing documents related to the Justice Department’s rejection of voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina. That includes filings in the Texas appeal to a federal court.
Hosemann says he’s making sure concerns the department raised in the two cases are answered, including questions about the distance any voter might travel to get a state-issued voter ID card.
He says that based on the department’s recent history of blocking voter ID laws, it appears unlikely that Mississippi’s law will be in place by the presidential election this November.
