    That's a better question.
    I never have......well, I haven't in a long time. I live in a small town and the poll workers know me.

    There is no such thing as voter fraud, there never has been. All this is is a desperate attempt by the Republican party to suppress voters who tend to vote democrat, specifically low-income blue collar citizens or hispanics who lack proper identification to vote. There is nothing wrong with voter identification laws.... but requiring voters to spend sometimes hundreds of dollars to obtain proper documentation to obtain state issued identification is fraud in itself. Why not implement thumb print scanning systems to identify voters? This would guarantee accurate voting results. Oh yeah, thats right, that would be a free solution, meaning an even playing field for republican and democratic voters. Republicans would hate this idea.

    No, the better question is, why are they making it more difficult to vote when there's no indication of a problem with the current system?

    Guess it depends on which way they are voting.

    Did dead people vote or did dead people register to vote. There's a significant difference.

    And don't blame your losing candidates on voter fraud when there's no evidence that voter fraud has ever been even .01% of any election. (in the US anyway) That's just plain childish.

    Young, elderly, students or the poor don't always have ID or an acceptable form of ID as required by these laws. If they are going to require an ID, then make the ID free and available to obtain at more locations than the DMV. ID in Oregon is $44.50. Allow college student ID cards to be used as well. If they are getting along without ID, then demanding it for the purpose of voting, functions as a poll tax.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    My state offered ID's for free, to anyone who simply stated, that they couldn't afford one.
    People still fought it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You are gave a voter registration card when you register. It costs you nothing. The law states that it is a valid form of identification.

    Can you read? You have to be registered to vote and democrats in King County register dead people and they vote and when they still don't have enough votes the find ballots in trash cans and in peoples cars.......................Picture ID to vote would put a screeching halt to that my left wing friend.
