LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Early voting for the March primary elections has a great turnout, but some people say the number of early voters went down compared to last March.
Democratic party Chair Silverio Martinez said the number of voters is down on Laredo's south side and up on the north side. He says several people called him saying they have had trouble with the Voter I.D. Law.
Local Professor James Norris said the Voter I.D. Law is designed to discourage voting and that Martinez's statements may also be to blame.
Tonight on KGNS News at Six, reporter Christian von Preysing goes more in depth on this situation, and also finds out if the young voter turnout has anything to do with the numbers.
