Seems the problem isn't with requiring ID, but in how ID is obtained in certain states that require it. I agree if the cost is too great, it seems pointless. Requiring a seperate voter ID card would make this a waste, asI have said several times since that subject was brought up. However Just using regular ID would cost the state nada. Agreed it won't stop voter fraud but closing what is an obvious open barn door seems like a good thing. Still doesnt explain the cameras in the house and strip search stuff. Call me sensitive but that was just silly hyperbole that made you point have less value as far as I'm concerened. Again I am not American what you do on how you vote is your buisness. I just think it strange the amount of animosity on what seems to me, as someone coming from a country that requires ID, as out of all proportion and context.photo ID came up untill jsut recently.
No, you need to show that the cost of doing so would not outweight the gain, the cost in this case is the people who would be prevented or discouraged from voting by the law VS the gain of stopping actual or any imaginary fraud that can be stopped by this law. A lot of the fraud that are done would not be stopped by the law, while the number of people who could be prevented or discouraged from voting by the law can be quite high.
Again many countries require ID and they do not have a problem so what is the big deal?
