    This should be a no brainer.Yes you should have to prove you are a citizen to get a voter registration card.



    My Way News - Must voters have to prove citizenship to register?

    The Supreme Court will struggle this week with the validity of an Arizona law that tries to keep illegal immigrants from voting by demanding all state residents show documents proving their U.S. citizenship before registering to vote in national elections.
    I can see where the SCOTUS may be in a quandary. If they say the law is unconstitutional they are saying non-citizens can vote and if they say the law is constitutional, it may impact some minorities and old people who don't have a birth certificate handy or other papers to prove they are a citizen. From personal experience, I say go for it Arizona.

    My wife who hadn't passed her citizenship test yet, was still a citizen of Thailand then. She went to renew her drivers licence and was asked if she wanted to register to vote. Not understanding the question and coming from a country where you usually do not say no to the police, she said yes. Now here she is registered to vote and not even a citizen. She never voted, but she could have. She is now a U.S. citizen and still doesn't vote.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think we blew past that total government control sign with the ACA. It's odd that people should get concerned about this issue with regard to voting, yet ignore it everywhere else.

    So, when you become a citizen, what?, they shake your hand and nothing? Hey, even immigrants, legal ones anyway, get a green card.

    : But the ACA was an anomoly that required bribes and threats to pass, and that was from their own party! The Repubs voted no, but it did squeek by. Only now are we being made aware of how costly it may be, contrary to the promises made by BHO and others.

    I don't know about other States, but we get a notification from the Election Board that you take with you when you go to vote. That, and your driver's license, plus the verification of your signature from previous elections, is sufficient proof. In my small town, we all know each other, but when I initially asked the voting guy in charge why, he told me "Hey, I even have to ask my mother to produce her driver's license!" Nuff said....

    I wasn't referring to that at all. I was referring to Obama's role as president.

    Ah, so nothing of any value to add to the conversation other than partisan nonsense. Here I was thinking you were just a regular run of the mill birther.

    I agree. The left gets their dander up over a voter ID because it disfranchises somebody somewhere supposedly, but we've all had our healthcare disfranchised by the government as it is, and they're all mum on that one.

    And you're completely non-partisan I take it. And here you were thinking....
