    This is not JUST about i.d. Gerrymandering is a nonissue since both parties do it. But closing a precinct in a town with only two that typically swings democrat is a direct impediment to access. It is designed to make lines longer and make people who have to work unable to vote. Reducing the days in which people can early vote, register, and some of these other tactics being have nothing to do with fraud, but with voter suppression.
    Just as Reps wanted to shut down ACORN because of its voter registration efforts, a one place where abuse could happen since ‘enemy’ applications can be destroyed, they now want to take the fight right up to the ballot box itself.
    Molon Labe said that ONE fraudulent vote was too many no matter what the cost to legal voters. Is this true?
    Should Americans be forced between going to work or going to the ballot box? Should the disabled and elderly be forced to stand in long lines for hours? How many legal voters must be forced to walk away from their right to vote in order to prevent that one, very rare, very improbable, fraudulent vote?
    The answer the Republicans would give, “ALL OF THEM, if they are Democrat.”
    Sadly, I can’t say that were Dems in total control, they might not do something similar. Though how they might suppress the vote of white people, I don’t know. Close the precincts on wall street?
    Respectfully,

    The funniest comment on TV yesterday:
    A guest on a political show compared vote suppression to a Bar-B-Que contest. Who can suppress more, Texas or North Carolina.

    “Election reform” is when you can prevent members of the other political parties from voting.

    (Yawn) Ignorance is so boring. Historically, voter suppression by the GOP is a bigger crime than voter fraud. And “voter fraud” has consistently been proven to be a GOP fantasy.

    Just to remind you, since I was a military brat, I have my 62 year old original birth certificate, my original Social Security card, two proofs of residence, and I paid the $54 for a drivers license so I can vote.
    Others are not so lucky, including one niece who would have voted for Romney.

    Right, because it was the Dems who pushed for the end of slavery and for civil rights… no wait, somehow that doesn’t equate to actual historical record. And why is it that the worst, most poor and most violent cities in our nation have been and continue to be operated by Dems who only seem to find amazing ways of making things worse? I’m amazed people still drink this spiked koolaide. I’m only ashamed it took me so many years to wake up and leave the Dems and their disastrous policies and their unflappable ability to create alternate realities to operate from. Now if only the Reps could get a clue.

    Is that why the Senate and the Presidency are all Democrats?

    It took my mother a year to qualify for Social Security because she couldn’t produce a birth certificate. In those days they were only filed in the county courthouse, and a lynch mob burned it. In other parts of Texas, it is a 350 mile round trip to get a driver’s license type photo ID. Could you make that trip without a car and still hold a job? That part has always voted Republican. I wonder why.

    “Why does an Illegal Alien have the right to vote??”

    He/she doesn’t. But that doesn’t keep some people from continuing to ask that very question.

    Here is what it takes to get an ID card in Florida.
    If you are homeless it costs an extra $6.50 and a drivers license renewal is $54.25.

    The Senate has no Republicans? I’ll bet that when he finds out, Mitch McConnell will be very unhappy.

    wow, I marvel at anyone from any party who wants to keep people from voting! We live in a “democracy,” albeit an uber dysfunctional one, so we should want people to vote. There are countries in which you must vote by law and we, in our great smug powerful democracy, are trying to limit voting access. What a terrible state our country is in. there is virtually no evidence of voter fraud, but much evidence of Republican State controlled State houses and Senates are passing laws to decrease access to voting. The attempt to restrict voting by passing state laws is 100% attached to Republican run state governments. Go Mike L. for consistently pointing out the obvious.

    “Yes indeed—it is the Cook County, IL precincts where the dead and animals get to vote along with those voting twice or more.”

    Another of the, “Is it true you’ve stopped beating your wife?” comments. Please provide proof that this has happened in the last 40 years.

    @Respectful Troll

    You said it, brother! I’ve also been seeing conservatives seriously suggesting that only people who pay taxes should be allowed to vote.
