    It makes perfect sense to have to prove one's identity at the polls. Otherwise, they guy who shows up and is told that he has already voted will be denied his right to vote. This right must be protected, and confirming identity is a common sense way to protect this constitutionally guaranteed right.

Give the voter ID out for free... then no problem, but we both know that wont go down well for the GOP.
    If it would cost 25-30 dollars every week or every month, I might agree. It would be a one-time cost though, and like our drivers licenses renewed every few years, so certainly not an undue burden.

    By all means do present verifiable evidence of this problem.

    Are you contending that this could not happen?

    That's what they always contend... then they rail on about how next to non-existant the problem is.

    The history of Chicago doesn't seem to mean anything to them, the history of the WORLD doesn't seem to mean anything to them. Must make life 'easy' when you can ignore the lessons of the past and have the mentality of 'that will NEVER happen to us' as they do.

    I'd rather eliminate all risk that someone will have his constitutionally guaranteed right to vote stolen by an impostor.

    The problem I have with it is that it solves nothing. The real fraud comes with absentee ballots, and nobody wants to check those IDs

    They should also be checked. I think it is prudent to use every measure that is not unreasonable at our disposable to prevent any occurrence of fraud. Requiring certain identification to cast a ballot is not unreasonable.

    Actions of the GOP in individual states. They could implement these ID programs for free.. but they have not. Instead they have put in road blocks that have made getting an ID cost money or you have to jump through more loopholes than Romney uses to get his 13% tax rate.

    Point is, it is not so "simple" to get such IDs that are accepted during voting and those that will get hurt by such laws are more than often... democratic voters.
