You've missed that creating birth certificates and other documents is "not legal". Getting around the issues takes lawsuits and other time consuming resources. And, I have agreed to take those that need just transportation, and there are regular drivers that do regularly take people to "town". For most of them their property is registered, it is the photo id that is the problem, and the requirements are not working for some. My precinct works already, there is zero fraud without a photo id. And 3/4 of the registered voters are Republican.

But the real question is why should anyone have to .... show me the fraud! Of course it would be nice if it were in significant number to have changed more than just a precinct, but I'll settle for documentation of fraud and how a photo id will prevent that particular fraud.

"Reed n d dark, I am glad to read your thoughts on this issue. I think that when more people are part of the voting process, it is beneficial for everyone, regardless of how they vote."

You say this without explanation, as if it is self-evident.

Try harder and explain why it's "beneficial for everyone."

Perhaps, if you ask the author of that statement, j jones, he might tell you why he was glad to read my thoughts. Or you could just go back and see what he was responding to, if you want to know what I said?

Do I have to spell it out for you???!!! Why are conservatives so darn pig-headed and stubborn? The freakin woman was already eligible to vote! She and many others have voted since Dr. King marched for their rights. Now, new laws have made her ineligible. It isn't that she can't make an effort to meet the new requirements. She shouldn't have to! She is still the same American she was when she was born in this country 90 some odd years ago!!!!!

j. jones,

Amen! And it has been perfected, if that is possible!!!!!

Pa appears to allow native born citizens, I believe of the state, to register if that cannot produce a birth certificate --- the state then queries the database and if the certificate has been registered they get to vote with out the birth certificate. They seem to have totally missed the steps to get some of these old birth records "registered" . Sigh .

Galactic Pope Chuck Norris says: //Why should anybody be registering somebody to vote?//

1. First of all the correct title for this subject should be "Voter Suppression" and NOT voter I.D.
I'm sure some people think that if people are in homeless shelters they should be denied the right to vote. - Let's say the state says they'll pay for the I.D. And let's say they have to have I.D for their welfare EBT cards. So they get it 6 months before the election.

But they are robbed/rolled, AND OF _COURSE_ THESE THUGS WOULD RETURN THEIR I.D. TO THEM. -Don't you think?

And I'm sure everyone who is for I.D laws would do the same for them.
