The thought of voting restrictions on Americans of a certain gender sounds downright archaic in 2013. But this story and map by Mother Jones magazine show that laws in a collection of states are making it difficult for some women to cast their vote.
Texas is the main culprit. The magazine wrote, "Not only must Texas voters present government-issue photo IDs to vote, but now poll workers are required under the law to check these IDs against an official voting registry to determine if the two names "substantially" match. That means that a woman who updated her voter registration when she got married, but not her driver's license or passport (and vice versa), could face additional hurdles in getting her ballot counted."
