    Who's pushing for NO ID for voting?

    ID requirements for voter registration is clearly spelled out in the HAVA act of 2002, sec. 303.

    If a simple photo ID was all that is required and everything possible was done to insure someone acquires said ID, I believe there would be very little pushback. It's all the garbage attached to these ID bills that cause some to not be able to comply or very difficult to comply, is what has people up in arms.

    Making it easier for every eligible voter in the U.S. to vote should be the goal, not erecting hoops and hurdles to discourage even one eligible voter to become discouraged from voting.


    Here's an investigation that found 31 credible incidents out of one billion ballots cast.

    That's a fraud rate of 0.00002%. Is that worth it if it causes even one eligible voter to not be able to cast their ballot?

    Well, so much for Attorney General Activism. But i have no illusions that Holder and his DOJ is going to continue to try and be activists for all these wrong headed, ideological ideas. Probably a good thing that he didn't (and doesn't) succeed.

    motion for judgement on the pleadings was the defendant asking the judge to end it entirely. The judge decided not to, while denying the plaintiffs motion to enjoin (which is what this case was for). So, if the plaintiff so chooses, they can bring the motion to court without getting the injunction they were looking for.
