    I seriously doubt any of those studies called up everyone on the sign in sheet to see if they actually voted.So those studies did not prove if fraud did or did not occur.

    Thank you for proving my point.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    When a state enacts a law that says you need ID to vote they give adequate notice. If the woman chose at the last minute to try to get a ID then that is her fault.

    You have been around a long time - you are intelligent - you know well that one cannot prove a negative like what you suggest.

    Only the terminally ignorant need proof of a negative.

    Since that does not apply to any of us here, I fail to see the validity of your question.

    How do you know she "chose at the last minute"?

    Please -- don't make stuff up and offer it as an argument. It just wastes everyone's time, and makes the thread look dumb.

    Not using a college ID is making a student either get a local driver's license (which would mean he's officially moved out of his parent's home -and that has tax implications) or vote at home. There is no reason a student shouldn't be able to vote in his college town with a valid student ID.

    Not sure where you guys went to college, but it was much easier to fake a state ID than it was to fake a student ID.

    And you're being paranoid. Again, there is NO proof that this is a problem.

    your link only said that no "organized attempts" at fraud have been found. They have certainly found cases of fraud.

    Are you saying that as soon as the new law was passed she immediately went down to the DMV to get her a ID and she has been waiting for ever to resolve the issue of her last name and no marriage certificate?

    You are claiming fraud isn't happening.
