    If you have someone go to every elderly/poor person and give them a photo ID free of charge, I'll support the law but it's still a waste of time and it's unnecessary. It's all just politics. They don't care if the votes are legit, they just care that their candidate wins.
    Because you can't expect poll workers at every precinct to have the time or wherewithal to be able to take the time to verify that the documents are authentic whereas you can have people who are qualified and have the resources and time to do it properly at the DMV... You are really and truly desparate in your arguments here...

    It looks like the Republicans are trying to lure the Dems to come back from fleeing the state by scheduling a vote on non-spending legislation that under senate laws the Republicans can vote on with a simple 17 majority present.
    good. If Democrats wish not to represent their constituents, then let that have consequences.

    not sure why people have not started recall petitions. Also wonder if these people who are hiding out are going to collect paychecks. Lastly if this goes on for a few months can they be taken of the roles as a Wisc. resident, what happens then.

    Why should he be forced by the government to do such a thing? He fought in WWII. Hasn't he done enough for his country to earn the right to vote? More government rules. That's always the answer for you big government types.

    He wants to vote.So we want to be sure that he is who he says he is when he votes and we also want to be sure that he is voting only in his assigned polling place.

    He fought in WWII. Hasn't he done enough for his country to earn the right to vote?
    That is not relevant. It has nothing to do with his ability to go down to the DMV to get a ID nor does it have anything to do with voting requirements. Again what would stop him from having someone take him to the DMV so he can get a ID?


    More government rules. That's always the answer for you big government types.
    Why do you libs always make the assumption that being against big government only means no more laws on the books?

    You are big government. More laws means bigger government control. Hello?
    Government adding restrictions in order to vote is big government. You are the closet liberal. Why deny it anymore? I am fiscally conservative, small government, socially liberal.

    If it actually happened, then I would support it. But it doesn't.

    The Bush Justice Department has a special dispensation to seek out Voter Fraud cases.

    In three years across the entire USA, they found 95 cases, convicted only 70 of the 95, and of those 70 - only 18 were individual voters who committed fraud by voting ineligbly. The others were committed by poll workers or party officials - in other words, they couldn't have been addressed by voter ID laws.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/04/12/wa...n/12fraud.html

    This is what they were able to find after having a mandate to specifically seek these cases out.

    That means: in the 2004 election, there were 112 million voters. Approximately .0000015% of Americans committed voter fraud.

    Is it worth risking someone's Constitutional rights for something that doesn't actually happen?

    What I find funny is that Indiana Republicans passed the toughest Voter ID laws in the land (despite NO evidence that fraud has ever occurred) and the first person who might be convicted of voter fraud IN STATE HISTORY is the recently-elected Republican Sec. of State, Charlie White - who explicitly committed voter fraud and claims "it was a mistake". And now he's in charge of Indiana election law. Nothing like a criminal overseeing elections.

    They now have started recal petitions for 7 of those absent.

    Is it alright if republicans hide whenever they percieve a defeat when it comes to voting?
