There are up sides to most crimes, ever heard of a crack head getting all stoned, looking at his cracked out buddy and saying, "hey, lets go vote." Show me some real evidence I will change my mind. There is just too few voter frauds to worry about. But of course not allowing many that can legally vote not too, if they are Democrats, well...

Proud of my home state on this one, seems we have gotten somethings right lately over the years.
But let me say im all in favor of voter ID laws IF they fall into the right category and in general PAs wasnt bad when just talkign about the ID part, it was actually pretty good:
Act of Mar. 14, 2012,P.L. 195, No. 18 Cl. 25 - PENNSYLVANIA ELECTION CODE - OMNIBUS AMENDMENTS
With that said im still glad this was dropped and it will probably go to SCOTUS, if people want to push for ID laws SCOTUS is where they should go and they should all conform and be the same nationally.
ID laws are great in my opinion if:
the ID is free and readily available (DMV, Post office, Court Houses, etc) including at the poll places
Other IDs are acceptable (any FEDERAL ID, STATE ID, State Municipality ID, State accredited institute of higher learning ID)
Votes are ALWAYS allowed to be cast but are just flagged and segregated for further processing
the issues with many Voter ID laws are they are piggy backed with new rules for voting like no voting on sundays, no early voting, no absentee voting, closing polling places, limiting the operating hours of certain/all polls, identical name on id and voter registration of the vote doesnt can or you can vote crap and reorganizing districts.
THAT is 100% unacceptable
so if theres going to be voter ID laws im all for it just follow the rules and make the law about . . . . .(wait for it) . . . (wait for it) . . . . .VOTER ID! lol
if not its not wanted

While I don't particularly like voter ID laws because I think they're motivated by prejudice, I also don't like it when judges overrule the will of the people because who gave them that right?
We're either a democracy or we aren't, and rulings like this are by definition un-democratic.
I would rather live with a law that I don't like, that's my personal opinion.
