If people aren't actually being charged or paying for the ID, how exactly is it a poll tax?

Again, the scaremongers refuse to address the real problem, counting the vote, rather they are attempting to sow fear of a bogeyman to deny working class citizens of their right to vote.

Many locations to obtain the voter ID cards are part time, only opened a few week days during business hours a week. Some are open only one day every 2 months.

It's not unusual to spend an entire day to obtain, plus the expense of obtaining supporting documents.

How much are states spending on voter education on voter ID ?

The Republicans are spending a lot of taxpayers money on lawyers to suppress citizens right to vote.

State continuing to waste money defending voter ID law | Palmetto Public Record

"Remember, all of this money is being spent to defend a law that solves a problem that has been proven not to exist. With South Carolina leaders attempting to balance the state budget on the backs of its workers, fiscal conservatives should be asking themselves whether such an unnecessary expense is really worth it."
