More literally, "ballot box stuffing" means one person stuffing 'a lot' of votes into the box, often an election official (opportunity), which would not be prevented by photo voter ID.

Since this problem has been around for generations it's difficult to see why improvements in security aren't being welcomed.
The only explanation would seem to be that a political party, in this case the Democrats, would have something to lose if honesty in voting regulations were introduced..
Ballot stuffing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Have all registered voters on a list by precinct. Check ID at the door before voting. Tally marked list versus votes cast. Eliminating the fraudulent votes also becomes easier as you have a list of those that voted by precinct. Ballot stuffing becomes something close to impossible.
I'm not surprised that you claim a lack of proof that the Republican motive in requiring new ID is to disenfranchise minorities, the poor, and the aged. This doesnt change the fact that it is possible . . .Your post/my post read them again. Now can you not see that I am using sarcasm? I used your own words to point out how silly your statement was. But someohow you missed the point and just attacked my paraphrasing of your argument.lets have some fun
I'm not surprised that you claim a lack of proof of this type of voter fraud means ANY type of voter id is unecessay. This doesnt change the fact that it is possible. see what I did there
Still thank you for pointing out that your arguement was false.
Recall better now?
In a debate, it is best to arrive informed.You quote me asking a question, Highlite the bit where I say I don't see how there could be any negative effects after the question, IE I am clarifiying what my question is about and you think this is proof of me refusing to learn anything?don't get it. Can someone please explain why voter ID would be a bad thing? It seems kinda common sense to provide proof of who you are when you vote. I don't see how this could have any negative effects. Not trying to be pissy or anything I just really don't understand why this shoudl be an issue.
In a debate, it is best to actually listen to the other people involved.
Your confusion is a result of weighing in on my posts that you
a) are not familiar with, and
b) have failed to read and/or comprehend.
back to the subject at hand
Would you still be against voter ID if it cost the state nothing and disenfranchised no one?

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
That is why, historically, ballot box stuffing is perpetrated by election officials or those in possession of the ballot boxes when no one else is around, rather than those actually voting... the 'fix' has to be 'in' by those who are supposed to be policing corruption, but are instead practicing it.
