Still can't convince me that there is a valid reason for not having some form of ID. You need an ID to receive government benefits, cash a check, to seek medical care etc. It's common sense which of course as of late is not too common...
...and here's an easy solution. Since all US citizens must have a Social Security card all that the Feds need to do is provide a picture to your card at 18. No more emotional demagoguery
I will say that part od the GOP focus should also focus on mitigating impediments to obtaining an ID. This at least demonstrate that they do concur that every registered voter be afforded the opportunity to vote unfettered.
if you can make it to the poll to vote, you can make it to the DMV to get a id. they are free. so there is no excuse to appose voter id, except if your counting on people to vote multiple times. or the dead voting. the dems keep saying that it's not that big of a deal, but in the last election 35,000 in NC. had there info used in other states to vote, to include dead people.
Anyone who can cast a vote can get free voter ID if they have no other qualifying ID. Difficult or "extreme" cases can be taken care by the secretary of state or by representatives of the political parties. Any argument to the contrary is bogus.
The only ones who don't care enough to insure the integrity of the system are the ones who want to benefit from illegal votes.
