Actually, they are requiring state-issued I.D. There are other forms of I.D. besides that. And your Social Security number is a form of non-photographic I.D. that can be used to prove your citizenship.now here is a question for everyone tha says how it is unfair to require id to vote.
you need a id to register to vote. so if you dont have any id how where you able to register?
But give me a second.
google...google...google... ah! Here we go! Section 303(b)(2) of the Help America Vote Act of 2002:
A) In general.--An individual meets the
requirements of this paragraph if the individual--
(i) in the case of an individual who votes in
(I) presents to the appropriate
State or local election official a
current and valid photo identification;
(II) presents to the appropriate
State or local election official a copy
of a current utility bill, bank
statement, government check, paycheck,
or other government document that shows
the name and address of the voter; or
(ii) in the case of an individual who votes by
mail, submits with the ballot-
(I) a copy of a current and valid
photo identification; or
(II) a copy of a current utility
bill, bank statement, government check,
paycheck, or other government document
that shows the name and address of the
Sorry about the formatting.
Note, that they say "valid photo identification," not "state-issued photo identification." So here in California, the law says this about photo I.D.:
(1) Current and valid photo identification provided by a third party in the ordinary course of business that includes the name and photograph of the individual presenting it. Examples of photo identification include, but are not limited to, the following documents:
(A) driver's license or identification card of any state;
(C) employee identification card;
(D) identification card provided by a commercial establishment;
(E) credit or debit card;
(F) military identification card;
(G) student identification card;
(H) health club identification card;
(I) insurance plan identification card; or (J) public housing identification card.
So there you have it.
I assume you are operating under the delusion that thousands of illegal aliens have registered to vote.
How would you know they weren't citizens if they did have ID?
My driver's license doesn't have my citizenship data, neither does my credit card, my health club ID, my employee id. Are you going to require a passport from everyone ?
Is there any data that indicates that large numbers of illegal aliens are registering to vote, I'll save you the trouble, no, there isn't, because illegal aliens hardly ever register to vote.
Still incapable of honesty, or are you saying you really believe there are large numbers of illegal aliens voting?
Neither! I just believe it makes good sense for anyone who votes, applies for public assistance, take a bus or train trip, fly on a public carrier etc to have identification. As a matter of fact it does not suppress voting of anyone as the indigent can get free IDs at will and both parties local offices will furnish transportation to and from the registrar and the polling place in most places.(All of the civilized parts of our country).and there are the morons who actually believe it's to stop voter fraud, which are you?I suspect those Hispanic "voters" don't have a picture ID for good reason, they are illegal thus we WANT to stop them from voting.I'm thinking you may actually believe this crap, because you are making a statement that you can't register to vote without a picture ID, but we know that 11% of hispanic voters in Texas don't have picture IDs, so maybe you do lack the critical thinking skills....
No matter how you cut it there is no excuse for a proper ID to keep even one legal person from voting.
What good does it do? It does nothing to stop the kind of vote fraud that is actually occurring, but it sure clamps down on something that isn't happening.
So be honest, admit you'd like to stop legally registered Americans from voting, to help your party win, why pretend it's about something else
It's like saying you're buying Juggs Magazine, for the editorials....
South Carolina Attorney General: 900 Dead People Voted in Recent Elections (Video) | The Gateway Pundit
South Carolina Attorney General: 900 Dead People Voted in Recent Elections
18,500 deceased voters still on the rolls, according to the AP.
If that's the case then the South Carolina politicians should get busy and purge the rolls. It's all on computer and should be a pretty easy job.
Just a thought ... does the Left look at ID as a kind of poll tax?
What you are doing is ignoring everything that points to this suppressing the minority vote, and ignoring everything that says there is hardly any voter fraud in the US, and based on the "fact" that someone showed what could happen if someone did something (but which the evidence shows never happens, another fact you ignore) you assume that this is a huge problem.
That demonstrates a lack of critical thinking.
Until you can prove me wrong, I would say it is you that is delusionalI assume you are operating under the delusion that thousands of illegal aliens have registered to vote.
To get an ID you need to show a birth certificate, do you not remember you had to do that to get a license to drive.How would you know they weren't citizens if they did have ID?
I just explained how you got a drivers license.My driver's license doesn't have my citizenship data, neither does my credit card, my health club ID, my employee id. Are you going to require a passport from everyone ?
One murder is to many, same with illegal aliens voting for handouts from you liberals that want an open borderIs there any data that indicates that large numbers of illegal aliens are registering to vote, I'll save you the trouble, no, there isn't, because illegal aliens hardly ever register to vote.
Do you believe not one illegal alien has voted in the US?Still incapable of honesty, or are you saying you really believe there are large numbers of illegal aliens voting?
You keep talking "large numbers" like unless it's a large number who gives a fuck. I guess if you don't have a large number of murders in your neighbored no big deal let them kill whoever they want. I have to shake my head over you liberals, you approve of a person having to show a birth certificate to get a drivers license, but it's OK for anyone that wants to register and or vote to just walk up and do it, no questions asked. Yeah you like voter fraud, keeps you liberals in office giving out free stuff.
Breaking: Still No Voter Fraud in South Carolina | Mother JonesExcept, um, maybe not. The South Carolina attorney general's office gave the State Election Commission six names off the list of 950 allegedly dead voters, and guess what they found?
In a news release that election agency spokesman Chris Whitmire handed out prior to the hearing, the agency disputed the claim that dead people had voted. One allegedly dead voter on the DMV's list cast an absentee ballot before dying; another was the result of a poll worker mistakenly marking the voter as his deceased father; two were clerical errors resulting from stray marks on voter registration lists detected by a scanner; two others resulted from poll managers incorrectly marking the name of the voter in question instead of the voter above or below on the list.
So that's oh-for-six. Five of the six were actually alive and the sixth had voted absentee before dying. There's no evidence of any fraud at all, just the usual bunch of administrative slip-ups.
