Betty Lockett, 103 and her second cousin Peter Smith, 64, who helped her get a voter ID are shown in Munster, Indiana October 18, 2012. Lockett moved from Illinois to Indiana this and wanted to vote but state officials would not accept her Illinois ID, asking for a passport or birth certificate. Democratic claims that a large number of Americans could be prevented from voting because of photo identification laws are probably overstated based on evidence from Georgia and Indiana, the two states where the laws have been in place for multiple elections, Reuters found.
