makes NO sense....~:-/
No. I had to show my state driver’s license and voters registration card, just like everyone else in Virginia. Only people who have an issue with this, are those people trying to vote more than once. Period.
It is unreasonable to put restrictions on what types of IDs are acceptable so that you significantly lower voter participation of any particular demographic.
government IDs can be made cheap or even free. Isn't that better than illegals voting and people double voting?
Not everyone who wants to and is eligible to vote has the opportunity to get those IDs or is even aware that they need one.
Then why are eligible voters turned away from the polls for not having the proper ID? And why are you okay with that?
Then don't defend the recent voter ID laws, that is the only thing that they actually do.
The democrats want all the illegals to vote for them with the promise of amnesty. There is no other justification.
Because showing ID makes it difficult to vote two times. It makes it hard to allow the felons to vote. It prevents the illegals from voting. It is that simple. Just ask Al Sarpten
Not unreasonable and expected.
Think about the process of getting an ID, what do you need? You need a birth certificate or a social security card, bills in your name, etc etc. and in almost all states IDs cost money. For people who come from disadvantaged backgrounds these things are not readily available. You're right, you do have to show ID I the modern world A LOT. But it's a privilege to drive, fly and enter buildings- its a right to vote. And since there have been no serious documented occurances of voter fraud, tightening the requirements does nothing but prevent legal citizens from exercising their rights. <br />
Also it's against the US constitution to implement a poll tax- so if IDs cost money then requiring them is unconstitutional.
Then they cannot cash the checks from the government. Think of the savings.
It's not unreasonable ...........unless it's suddenly an issue for those worried about losing the votes ! <br />
If the police stop you they can take you to jail and hold you until they can establish who you are.
In Canada we always show ID to vote, I can see why some people in the US have a problem with it.
I have always shown mine even when they don't ask. It is reasonable to ask because it makes it a bit more certain a person is not making the rounds voting at all the local precincts.
Because in theory at least ithe citizen has more authority then the government under the constitution and bill of rights.
No - one person one vote is the law and people live under it.
No, the authority of the law is derived from the people. government of the people, for the people, by the people. It is Our servant not the other way around.
not at the grocery store! You don't need ID there!
ppl should be allowed to vote twice?..
