    If someone denies me the right to vote because I don’t have a valid picture ID, can I go into federal court and sue that person? NO! Why? Because you NEED A PICTURE ID TO GET INTO A FEDERAL COURTHOUSE!! What is so bloody hard about getting a picture ID?

    I can see the point. College students, if US Citizens and over 18, SHOULD vote. But where? Where they go to school, or where they would normally live?

    If you didn’t need a picture ID to vote before (and in-person vote fraud is practically nonexistent), then can you think of circumstances where old or poor or rural people who don’t have the “right” ID would be discouraged from voting? It can take money to get the required “proof” for the ID, and it takes time (during working hours) to travel to a government office and get the ID. If you don’t drive, and there’s no public transportation, a 5 or 10 mile distance (or much more) can be a significant barrier.

    Until the government gives out those photo IDs for free, requiring one would be a tax. IF you want all voters to have photo ID, then it must be paid for by the state, and it must come at the time of registration. AND, it must then be a photo registration card. That way, everyone has to go through the same hassle (which is another form of voter discrimination – making it harder for one group than another). By the way, I recently got into a federal courthouse without showing any ID at all.

    A judge has ruled that the ECSU college student will be able to run for office using his dorm room address, which means the other students will now be able to vote——if they have the right id and transportation.
    The GOP uses voter fraud (practically non-existent fraud) to support these id laws. LOOK at which ids are being made acceptable. LOOK at where voting stations are being set up. It is obvious, as the nose on your face, that these id laws are designed to increase the percentage of GOP votes, not eliminate fraud. (and huge donations/lobby efforts are a much more dangerous type of voter “fraud”)
    My only hope for my home state is that the NC GOP has gone so far overboard that they will still lose their legislative majorities.

    And just where are college students most likely to be in the first week of November? What proportion of the students do you think might be a long distance from home? Combine that with the thought that they just might be more intelligent than the general population and the prevelant conception that college student tend to lean towards liberal policies.


    You should be able to figure why the repubs want to prevent voting in the college district.

    If you can show the proof in order to be registered to vote, why should you then have to prove – all over again – that you can vote????

    There are a significant number of persons in the U.S. who never had a birth certificate or for whom one no longer exists.

    College kids don’t live normally.

    You don’t. You simply must prove that you are who you say you are,

    Why is it that people on the left are assuming that black people are too stupid and too poor to get themselves a valid picture I.D.

    On a related subject, a hospital that has been in eastern NC for 60 years is closing because the redumblicans rejected Obamacare.
