Oh and for the record.. I do believe there should be voter ID... a national wide, Federal ID program only for voting. One that states or local governments could NOT manipulate for their own political gain.

2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Well let's do the math here: Many DMVs aren't even open every day of the week, so it's really more like 40 days. The BCJ has estimated that in places like Philadelphia, the proportion of voters without a valid ID is about 20%. In 2008, there were 717,329 votes cast in Philadelphia County. So that means that approximately 143,000 people will need to go through the process over the course of 40 days...or roughly 3,500 per day. It looks to me that the county has 7 facilities which can process photo IDs, which means that EACH FACILITY will need to process 500 voter ID forms every single day until the election (on top of their regular workload). Of course, that assumes that the process is so easy that everyone actually does it, which the good people who support this law assure me that they will.That's funny; what I said was that they got started long ago, and obviously, they did. Now that the card is available, sixty days strikes me as an eminently reasonable period of time to get it done, if you want to.
Does 500 voter ID forms per DMV per day (in addition to regular work) still sound eminently reasonable to you? Have you ever been to a DMV?
See above.I don't know if you're doing this on purpose, but that's not what I asked. You said the state offices don't have the capacity to process all of these new voter IDs in time for the election. Where's your evidence of this?
Laws that specifically aim to disenfranchise minority voters, BECAUSE they are minority voters, without actually mentioning race = Jim Crow Laws.Nice race-card vomit you spew there.
This is absolutely a fair description of these voter ID laws. And anyone who supports them is absolutely supporting Jim Crow Laws. Your views on this are reprehensible and disgusting.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
