The effect of voter ID

Washington Post - In response to a request from a group of Democratic senators, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office analyzed the effect of voter ID laws in Kansas and Tennessee on 2012 turnout. Turnout dropped at least 1.9 percentage points in Kansas and 2.2 percentage points in Tennessee thanks to the laws. By our calculations, that's 122,000 fewer votes.

Is there anyone, not a Republican, who doubts that the vast majority of those 122,000 non-votes would have been Democrat votes? (I am a registered Green Party voter.)
