    Where is the polling place that does not require some sort of ID in America? In such a place I’m sure the citizens realized a long time ago not to bother to show up…Because that means your vote doesn’t count!

    Good toon. I’m still surprised the Dems spent all that money just to allow people to vote without showing an ID.

    Gov Tom is a republican.

    Until this year, no polling place in Pennsylvania required an ID, unless you were a first-time voter at a polling place.
    The new voter ID law was just struck down in court, as it did not allow sufficient time for all voters to obtain a proper ID.
    Also, some Republicans, who control all three branches of the state government, had openly said that the law was designed to give Romney the win in Pennsylvania.

    plus, the media showcased some elderly vets who don’t drive the multiple hoops they have jump through to get a voter id card. one was even awarded the bronze star. and, a what if scenario, if the dems still vote, what then? will the gop enact other laws for voters to vote, like literacy tests, poll tax, or, doing the hokey pokey?

    Don’t worry about that. The Republicans are already working on the problem. It would seem several state Republican parties and the Romney campaign hired a dodgy company to commit voter registration fraud.

    What ACTUALLY happened is that a number of people decided to protect American citizens’ sacred right to vote against a law deliberately designed to disenfranchise a significant portion of the population because it might vote Democratic. And a judge took note, because it was self-evident that this was the case, and of course was supported by a statement caught on video by a GOP leader. If you don’t think that’s a bad thing, you really don’t understand America.

    Your local media may have been a little disingenuous in their reporting. The last I read on this subject, PA local unions and community groups were going organize and provide transportation for those people that needed to get an I.D. Did something happen to that?

    “The dems need all the unregistered and undocumented voters they can to win this time.”
    It would seem the Republicans feel they need to resort to voter registration fraud to win.

    In FL I still have to make an appointment to go to the drivers license bureau, show my birth certificate, social security card and TWO forms of address and pay $54 to vote.

    Actually, you don’t. The Republicans are TELLING you that you do, in the hopes that you’ll give up and stay home, but the law was stayed by the courts, thank God.

    “Those folks needed to know that the help was available first, and then they had to ask.”

    You amaze me again. You have taken my simple inquiry about some people I thought were doing a good thing and had, perhaps, let it go by the wayside. Instead you turn that simple question into me condoning a Republican plot to disenfranchise voters and an “excuse to serve the tyrant”. Are you really so jaded that you find it necessary to disparage my concern about what I considered a good out reach program to allow the Democratic constituents to vote? Republicans should follow that example so that we can get a higher proportion of the electorate to vote and get a truer representation of what the American people want and have it represented better in Washington.

    So these elderly vets do not drive? Or have a VA ID? The idea that in this day and age getting an ID is going to be difficult for any but a very tiny minority(who will no doubt be helped by any of numerous non-profits to obtain their cards) is ridiculous

    In fact Mechanic the Constitution does specifically mention voting. It gives the power to monitor and control voting to the STATE Article 1 Section 4 “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof….”

    You’re lucky you were that flexible. Not everyone can afford to take more than one trip a month to go through that hassle.
