There are many people home bound, nursing home bound, hospital bound, that can't go get the "damned thing". Where is their right to vote? Oh they still have it... but not with such ID requirements.
See the issue? Of course that wont stop people from stealing their votes and slapping their name on the ballot they were last registered too. It's how dead people have kept on voting BTW.
Party affiliation gets counted this is where the system fails.
So register unaffiliated or independent... then how and who are they going to steal votes from?

so lets see if I have the big picture. You are opposed to this since it's something that never happens. Except you actually did commit this crime and were successful, but we shouldn't take that into account since you were just testing the system. I'm sorry, but I fail to see how making sure you are who you claim to be is harming anyone.
I'd still like to know how this targets minorities. I have a feeling there aren't actually any people out there who just can't find a way in a years time to get a free ID. But then, I suppose they could just try your trick and lie.
