    Virginia has had voter ID laws for a while. Have you noticed anyone complaining they did not get to vote because of that?

    Because students won’t be able to vote.

    You are required to show a picture ID before going into a federal courthouse. This means that if I have no ID and someone denied me the right to vote, I could not walk into a federal courthouse to file a lawsuit against the person who denied me the right to vote. Even if a lawyer did it for me, I would still be denied entry into the courthouse to testify at the trial. How weird is that?

    I work in a liquor store in PA. I don’t have to card every single customer, unlike the voting ID law requires.

    Not to mention that buying a beer was outlawed from 1919-1933 by a Constitutional amendment (the 18th).

    @pianoguy, who wrote: “Need ID to get on a plane, cash a check, buy a beer….why not for voting?” & how about for buying a gun (of any sort)?

    To vote, first I had to prove that I was a US citizen to the registrar. And after I showed my papers, I had to sign the voting form. Then, every time I went to vote, I had to sign next to my name, and the persons in charge of voting checked my signature (plus, they knew me by sight).


    But I know that they let Hispanics vote with no signature, no ID, and let them vote repeatedly. It’s only those of us who look like WASPs that must have our signatures checked.


    A good voter ID law will let decent WASPs reject the ID of anyone who isn’t a WASP as not being the proper kind of ID. That’s the kind of voter ID law we need.


    Also, the voter ID person needs to reject all those WASPs who look like they’ll vote Democratic.


    Then, and only then, will we’ have a free and fair election.

    So if there was a fire in the records office 60 years ago that burned up your birth certificate you can’t pay the $54 ID fee and vote.

    The voter registrar should provide the photo ID at no charge. That eliminates the hurdles and gives the RWNJs what they want.

    Ok what if they vote in two states, or what if they are not U.S. Citizens?
    As for the Constitution try reading it:
    Article One Section Four:
    The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of Choosing Senators.

    It goes on to say the federal Congress can over ride such legislation but until they do sorry the states are in there rights under the constitution.

    @Omnius
    Your psycho-babble is over used and is diminishing to the point where it’s just an annoying buzz that needs to be swatted.

    Yes it is. But I bet you can not show me where in the constitution.

    The guarantee is that a “citizen” has the right to vote and only a “citizen”.

    When one registers to vote you sign an affidavit that you are indeed a citizen. No documentation required.

    When you get a driver’s license or state ID card ($25.00 in Fla) you are required to present proof of a number of things among them your birth place and legal residence and the status of that legality ( non citizens with work permits or temp visas are required by law to carry supporting documentation at all times) .

    So do you or do you not want to protect the integrity of the polling place?

    Still, I do NOT think that voter fraud is a real issue.

    “The voter registrar should provide the photo ID at no charge. That eliminates the hurdles and gives the RWNJs what they want.”

    That sounds good on paper, but there are other hurdles that can be built in to the system. Never underestimate the power of corrupt partisan politics.
