COLUMBIA, S.C. — The Justice Department is rejecting South Carolina’s voter ID law, saying it makes it harder for minorities to vote.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said Friday that South Carolina’s law didn’t meet the burden under the Voting Rights Act. He says tens of thousands of minorities in South Carolina may be unable to cast ballots under the law because they don’t have the right identification.

The Justice Department must approve changes to South Carolina’s election laws because of the state’s failure in the past to protect the voting rights of blacks.
