Elections are pretty important to both sides I would hope. So make it a requirement to have an ID whether a birth certificate or voter id!
I never showed a photo ID during voter registration in NJ or CO. My NJ registration was done online and my CO registration was done at the DMV while getting my new CO drivers license.
I have been asked to present an ID every time I have voted in both states. I wonder what would happen if I refused?
This seems cold on the surface; and just WHAT is the KS Governors Office doing to rectify this situation? Send them all to bed without supper?That’s fine with Gov. Sam Brownback, who said he signed the bill because it’s necessary to “ensure the sanctity of the vote.” Actually, Kansas has had only one prosecution for voter fraud in the last six years. But because of that vast threat to Kansas democracy, an estimated 620,000 Kansas residents who lack a government ID now stand to lose their right to vote.
The implicit message is "Self-reliance wins". However, this is pretty much a move that disenfranchises over half a million people. Where is the Governor's sense of civic duty?
Isn't this the behavior that the Constitution seeks to eradicate?
