    Doesn't really matter. The identity documents that are needed to create a photo ID should be good enough to allow someone to vote. After all the photo ID was issued because of those documents.


    Free? Someone pays for them. Guess who?

    It's still 28 bucks in Wisconsin.

    Yes, because Birth certs., and SS cards are never forged or stolen by anyone.....

    Free? Someone pays for them. Guess who?
    Would that be the same people now paying for the bloated pensions, and cadilac health care for Pubulic sector union members now? I'll bet you that the 28 bucks is less than either one of those.

    It's still 28 bucks in Wisconsin.
    How else you gonna pay for the DMV workers $50K per year pension?

    c
    ............those same stolen birth certificates and SS cards used to get photo IDs? Why can they be used to obtain a photo ID, but not to vote?

    I find it loathsome to see there is not some structural mechanism to expel each and every POS who has abandoned their jobs, and replace them with reps appointed by the governor. Or, for the state elections board to immediately institute elections in the districts of the scumbags who ran like sissies and cowards.

    They will get their's in the end. The voters will remember.

    We have become a nation of tyrants who ignore the law when it suits a purpose.

    Non-Americans voting is unconstitutional. Proving you are who you say you are is not unconstitutional.

    restrictions in the past have been used to hinder valid voters from voting. This is why some react rather strongly against the notion. And I do believe some would like to make things hard for eligibale voters who they think might change the math. What we need are reasonable requirements, with reasonable exceptions, much like we already have.

    Getting a driver's license or photo ID card is hardly unreasonable, would you agree? Sure, you don't want voting competency tests or educational requirements for voting; that would be unconstitutional( and a slippery slope to go down).

    But proving who you are with a valid ID is hardly unreasonable.

    Why can't the same identification that is used to get a photo ID be used to vote? That is reasonable.

    Unreasonable? Depends on the situation. All I really need to know is this person is eliegable. I honestly don't think we have a large problem with this here.
