    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    IMO, a photo ID should be required in order to reduce fraud. It's not hard to get a photo ID, even if you don't need/have a driver's license or passport. In many states, you can get a photo ID card (not a DL) simply by getting a photo taken and filling out some paperwork. If that's too much work for someone, I doubt they're diligent enough in their homework to make an informed decision on a candidate anyway... If they are physically/mentally unable to do this, surely there are people that would help them?

    That pretty much sums up the last 83 pages.

    So tell me, how do these minorities get their cell phones without an ID. I see racism on the part of the anti-voter ID people, who don't want to hold everyone to the same standards, and in the view that only minorities are affected by these issues.

    I'd say anything that could even potentially disenfranchise voting should be looked upon with suspicion. Think about literacy tests... anything that could possibly be exclusionary should not be allowed.

    In this case, it is certainly possible that some people aren't used to showing ID (such as a poorer person without a driver's license). Yes, most people would be completely unaffected, but if we are to remain true to the principle of giving everyone the right to vote, then it simply is not worth risking any disenfranchisement.

    Link to your source that says all poor people have cell phones? Thanks!

    Even if those disenfranchised are deceased?
