    How many people voted more than once in the last election? Were there any? This is just political.
    Got a 96-year-old grandfather in a nursing home who voted in the last election. What's your point? If you can't get out to get a simple ID card, can you get to the voting booth anyway?

    Your chasing an issue that isn't an issue.

    Elderly people vote for candidates that support medicare and Social Security.


    Voter fraud is committed by the vote counters and poll workers, not the voters. That's a myth.
    You contradicted yourself with the bolded sentences. ACORN did this kind of thing, registering everyone who walked down the street (including dead people), and phenagling the results. I could see La Raza doing the same.

    A myth, eh ??? Tell that to the people in Memphis.

    MEMPHIS, TN - Two people face felony charges for voter fraud in Shelby County, and the District Attorney says there could be more arrests. They're accused of voting twice in an election four years ago.

    Election administrators say they're doing everything they can to make sure everyone turning out to vote this year gets just one vote.

    The District Attorney says 52-year-old James Golden got more than one vote. He and 69-year-old Anne Enochs each face one count of illegal registration or voting.
    NEW YORK Results of a state senate election in western Tennessee have been thrown into doubt, and an investigation into voter fraud launched, after the Commercial Appeal of Memphis uncovered proof that votes had been cast for dead people.

    The Sept. 15 special election to fill a vacant seat in the 29th state Senate District, which includes part of Memphis, had already drawn intense interest when the margin of victory was just 13 votes out of 8,750 cast. Democrat Ophelia Ford had edged Republican Terry Roland in the race to fill the seat previously held by Ford's brother, John, who was forced to resign in May after being indicted on bribery charges.

    After the election, Roland's campaign began to review voter rolls looking for questionable votes in the tight race. The campaign also filed a plea with the state Senate to bar Ford from being seated when the Senate convenes next year.

    John Harvey, a Roland campaign advisor, said he came up with about 60 names he believed might have not been authorized to vote for several reasons and gave the names to Commercial Appeal reporter Marc Perrusquia last week.

    The reporter, a 16-year veteran of the paper, began reviewing the names and addresses of those who had voted in one of the district's 60 precincts, and discovered one person's address was a vacant lot. He then cross-matched names with the paper's recent obituaries and found the person, Joe Light, had died about six weeks before the election.

    Wow. A couple people committed voter fraud and got caught.

    I have a question for you, Einstein.
    How does one get a photo ID if they don't have a photo ID proving who they are in the first place?

    No one should be forced to pay a fee to vote. And having to purchase a photo ID is paying a fee. It's not fair to everyone.

    What is ironic here is that I agree 100% with your post.

    Of course, the conclusions I draw are 100% opposite of yours regarding the impact and effect it will have upon both sides.

    Don't know how many illegals voted. Its impossible to tell due to the ability to vote privately. As for registering...yeah...like people never lie huh? I mean lets face it...illlegals never use fake ID's or fake SS cards or stolen SS cards do they? As for them staying away...they held protests in major cities yet were never arrested. I'm pretty sure that they can and would do something that is anonymous....like voting.

    You people really don't see how ridiculous this law is and it's only going to keep some people from voting.

    People can get a drivers license without a photo ID, so why can't they vote without one?

    How'd you get one the first time? LOL

    Birth certificate, social security card, credit cards......you can get one if you go through the proper channels. And I'd bet less than 1% of the elderly doesn't have some sort of photo ID.

    So you want just anyone to be able to walk up and vote? Typical.
