    It is a question worth thinking about—if you insist on photo ID to stop fraudulent voters, won’t they just obtain fraudulent photo ID?

    @SKJAM!

    What are you talking about? If fake IDs were that easy to get, people would be use it for underage drinking, gambling, and and writing fraudulent checks. Those things never happens.

    In Venezuela Chavez and the current president got elected by fraudulent means, people voting in two or more ballot stations, some how dead people showed up to vote, and minors were also voting; of course no photo ID was required. On the other hand Canada requires every voter to have a photo ID, either a drivers licence, a passport or a citizenship card, and if all is lost a health card can be used as a last resort. How much does Canada suffers for the requirement of photo ID, Nothing. I just don’t see what’s the big deal, we all need photo ID for everything else, why not voting. The opportunity for fraud is greater without Photo ID.

    If the voter id card is issued at the time of registration, and is at no charge, then no problem.

    If you try to vote twice with the same voter ID in my state you’ll get arrested.

    When I vote in Ontario, I walk up the street to the middle school and I go into the auditorium and I say to the elections official, “Hi, Ellen,” and she says, “Hi, Lonecat.” She asks for ID, and I show her either my driver’s license or my ID from where I work — it used to be that a utility bill to your address would do, but I don’t think that counts any more. She checks my name off the list (we don’t have to register, that’s done for us automatically). I go over to the voting booth and I’m out in about 3 minutes. There are voting stations all over, and I’ve never seen a line of more than four or five people. Anyone who forgets to bring ID can sign a form and cast a vote, which is counted unless it is challenged. Or if someone else can vouch for you, you can vote. “Hey, Ellen, that’s Martk, he lives next door to me, I can vouch for him.” I’ve never seen that happen, but I think it’s within the rules. Ellen knows most everyone in the neighborhood, anyway. We don’t seem to have much trouble with fraudulent voting. We have had some trouble, however, with (dare I say it) Conservatives phoning up people with incorrect information about when and where to vote — there are some cases going through the courts right now.

    @mdavis4183

    So we should get separate fake IDs for each time we want to vote? Good tip.

    I had lived in my previous apartment for 15 years and voted in every election. The election judges (same ladies every year) knew me by name. Each and every election for 13 years, my voter registration was challenged. I re-registered twice hoping that would put an end to it. The challenges followed me after a name change. My voter registration was even challenged the first two years I worked as an election judge. The second year as an election judge, the head judge of my ward expressed annoyance at the repeated challenges and told me she’d have a word with election supervisor. The challenges finally stopped.

    So, like the rest of the American system, if you have access to somebody with power, things can get done.

    I’m sure you are intelligent enough to understand the request bu CDK, tolerant enough to overlook the typographical error ………. “and stuff”. However, you choose to ridicule instead of educate.

    A simple link to any actual proof that " America uses voter ID to stop people from voting." would be nice. Can you produce it?

    Or are you just spouting the party line rhetoric you have heard over and over from your masters?

    Funny, it is the exact same way in MY hometown. Well, I did have to wait 5 min. in a line one time…….

    Like when the “vote counters” elected Bush in Florida when Gore actually had more votes.
