    [QUOTE=Tyler Durden;4010487]The easier it is to register to vote the better, but to actually vote, photo ID is not a crazy requirement.[/QUOTE]

    Yep, I agree.

    In fact, I would back-end tie Voter Registration to ALL Government Service.

    Of course, it should be remembered that I am also supportive of denying all Govt. services to illegals, making my system work much better. /shrug.

    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!

    [QUOTE=bitonti;4010279]that is to say, it's not a "problem" at all.

    it's a fictional problem.[/QUOTE]

    Everytime I've voted, I've had to show a photo ID. :dunno:

    For me, never - and I've often wondered why not.

    The only way that is possible if is you did not present photo ID when you registered to vote and have only voted once in the State of New York.

    It is otherwise illegal for you to be asked to show photo ID.

    I don't like to resort to name calling but you're such a little bit*ch. Pun intended.

    This is either TX style trolling, or you're just that dumb.

    My assumption is that each state has its own procedures.

    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?

    I dunno. Maybe I look shifty.

    Besides, WTF does a "photo ID" do? Y'all realize that those are probably the easiest things in the world to fake, right? I think people should have to submit to a retinal scan. You can't fake a retinal scan. Word.

    There's more of a chance of voter machine fraud than widespread voter fraud.

    Let me know when they outlaw Diebold machines we can talk about photo iD

    This is like saying you don't need to ever change the oil in your car as long as you keep the gas tank full :rolleyes:

    [QUOTE]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.[/QUOTE]

    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? :dunno:

    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?
