I'd be absolutely fine with this if the statement was any citizen and require they have a valid state issued picture ID. And I'd be fine with spending the necessary funds to have the DMV's of each state be able to issue a free "Identification Card" to anyone with a valid social security number. Thus there would be a no cost option for every citizen to be able to have at least one form of picture ID.
I'm also entirely fine with having some general federal guidelines when it comes to elections for federal positions. However, I oppose the ever continuing attempt to make elections go earlier and earlier. My personal opinion is you allow people to have an absantee ballot if they qualify for conditions showing they live away from their home district most of the year (Military, those in school, etc) OR if they have a qualifying condition physically restraining them from venturing out to vote (some form of handicap). You also open the polls for one week, opening on the last Tuesday of October and closing on the first Tuesday of November.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I'm 100% ok with ID being required IF the ID is free to the voter. I would be ok with paying extra on taxes to ensure that voters that don't have ID get one. There, problem solved. The problem is getting the right to go along with that.
If we required a voter to pass a 3rd-grade civics/math/English/history exam, the GOP would win every election by 40 points.
What we allow to vote makes forums like these pointless.
