One of the more controversial aspects of the 2012 election campaign has been a series of new laws that make it harder for some people to vote.

In the past two years, more than a dozen states across the US have passed laws that could restrict voting.

Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to blocking legitimate voters from casting ballots.
