Voter registrations are being questioned in Georgia.

Interesting story.

One claim is the names may not actually exist?

Hmmm.

What's the "I.D." requirements for voter registration?



Amid a scramble for political supremacy in rapidly changing Georgia, Democrats and Republicans are pointing fingers over the handling of as many 50,000 voter registration forms as the Nov. 4 election looms.

The dispute pits one of the state's highest ranking Democrats and the minister of the church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was once the pastor against the Republican secretary of state, with the two sides headed to court this week.

Leaders of the New Georgia Project say the group gathered about 86,000 voter registration forms, focusing on minority, younger and otherwise disengaged citizens. Those would-be voters are likely to lean Democratic, though the organization is technically nonpartisan.

But now the group's leaders say they cannot find about 40,000 of those names on official voter lists maintained by Secretary of State Brian Kemp, a Republican, with 10,000 more names listed as "pending."


That's why all states need to require ID when voting

Maybe they ought to check out the cemeteries for the names of the voters that they can't find
The Dead have a way of voting too...

It doesn't make sense. We need ID's to pick up something from a store, to register our cars, but it isn't needed for voting? No sense in it whatsoever.

So many voters who probably don't exist.

Usually a few days before an election in Chicago, the floral shops are overwhelmed with deliveries to grave sites.

I've often wondered about those that holler & whine about having to show a form of ID to vote, claiming it's unconstitutional
Mean while we have to show ID to buy beer, cigs, check into motel, some places require ID now to buy Money Orders, traffic stop, cash a check etc.......the list goes on & on

Yet the one most precious right we have in this country--voting-- and people get outraged about showing ID to vote
I think it ought to be mandatory regardless of who doesn't like it

I just think showing an ID when you vote is common sense. Prevents the person from going in more than once, prevents fraud (helps at least). The times ID is required is extreme but voting should be one of those times. Times have most certainly changed, IDs are required for security. But voting (which is exercising a freedom) has no safeguards. It's very, very frightening.

Well, where I live you get a voter ID card that has your precinct and party affiliation on it. There's no picture, but there is your name. I think that's all that should be required. I mean, to register to vote don't you usually have to prove your identity somehow?

Somehow but apparently it's a huge issue because there's names that don't match up.

Of course it makes sense when you're a crooked politician. Get rid of the need for voter ID and it makes it so much easier to STEAL an election. It should be obvious to anyone.

I despise anyone who wants to get rid of Voter ID. Only crooks would support it.

It's true there are koolaid-drinking, brainwashed zombies who parrot any party line -- who no longer have any capacity to think for themselves -- but generally, people who are against Voter ID are either crooks or political operatives who want to destroy the US of A. Bill Ayers comes to mind.

It makes sense to politicians who benefit from it. But citizens realize why they oppose it

I had the impression that the reason the 40,000 names could not be found was that they had been thrown out, or conveniently 'lost'......by the Secretary of State...........

By the way, doesn't xuenchen already have another thread on this same 'event'??

People complain about the voter ID because states want to charge people for them and this may come as a surprise to people who think like you but some people's finances simply can't afford an ID. If states pass a voter ID law then the ID's should be provided free of charge because you can't charge a person to vote.

People who whine we need voter ID's leave out the fact that there has been no major election where voter fraud influenced the vote. Why do the people who support the Republicans keep pushing for voter ID laws? Because generally poor people don't vote for Republicans.

I don't think they should charge for them but they should definitely make it a requirement.

I have no problems showing voter ID
Don't care if others don't like it

Since voting is a right, one should have to prove that they have that right to vote to begin with, by showing a picture ID to prove that you are who you say you are

But that's just my opinion, which I'm sure you'll disagree with
ETA: And it has nothing to do with any political affiliation

Besides, the direction that our country is headed, we will all have to be required to carry some form of picture ID in the future anyway

Exactly. And showing ID stops people from voting in different areas during the same election. Currently we don't know who's really voting. So much fraud and they rely on this.

How much does it cost to get a State photo ID card? I imagine it would vary from one state to another. It can't be much.

In any case, I have nothing against using TAX money to pay for State photo IDs for the poor. It would be worth it to cut down on voter fraud.

I realize not everyone has a driver's license.

Refom the electoral process to have verifiable votes on a public ledger using bitcoins blockchain technology and it wont matter who uses a fake name.

All names will be run through birth and death indexs on a county level, and social security on a federal level. Each state would publish its unverified votes with an appeals process while at the same time databasing said names for future elections. additions to the list of disqualified names should grow smaller each election.

The public would be free to not only count but validate their own votes

Maybe one of us is misunderstanding this story but...how would voter ID do anything in this situation?

As I understand it 89,000 people registered and 40,000 of those registrations were thrown out for, seemingly, no reason. How would voter ID have helped that?

As to your opinion on rights:
I have no problems not owning a gun.
Don't care if others don't like it

Since owning a gun is a right, one should have to prove that they have that right to own a gun to begin with, by having a background check to prove that you are who you say you are
