The easy solution to this problem? Make the photo IDs free to obtain from the social security administration.

I already agreed that free photo IDs would solve the problem.

Instead of a photo id , I suggest we have an alegebra problem that you have to solve before you get a ballot or let everyone have one vote, but for people that pay income taxes get another vote for every $1000 in taxes paid.
And just to be just, citizens accepting federal or state assistance should not be eligible to participate in the election process. Only employed, tax-paying citizens over the age of 25 should be able to vote.

Its all the Democrats ploy to steal elections. They have illegals come vote, and people voting multiple times under different names. Hey even vote for dead constituents.
re you able to walk into a voting precint without any id? They have no record of your address and citizenship in a book that you have to sign as you walk into the precinct? How do you prove who you are? How do you prove where you live, and hence what district you live in??
I sign my name in the book. If I find someone else signed my name on my registration, I scream out that someone is attempting to commit fraud in my name. It is that simple. Once I leave, no one can come in and claim to be me because I already signed my name next to my name in the book. It is very simple and works like a charm otherwise I would not still be asking for one instance where it failed.
Where is your proof of voter fraud?
Why are people claiming fraud they cannot show ever happened? Are people on ATS really just repeating things politicians and the media tell them without looking for themselves? Tsk tsk ATS. For shame!
Let us remind you of the many instances of voter fraud that have happened right here in New Hampshire.
1) In 2002 a CNHT member found that her name, as well as her deceased husband’s name, were already checked off as having voted when she went to vote.
2) In 2008, Christopher Luke Fithian wanted to make sure Obama was elected and voted twice up in the north country. This is one of the few cases of prosecuted fraud.
3) In 2000, 1700 students were caught voting improperly. Their only punishment was to write a letter of apology to the state and have their names taken off the list.
4) A candidate for Mayor of Laconia mailed out about 8,000 letters to the (approximately) 8,000 registered voters in Laconia. Some 800 of them were returned as having moved from Laconia. (The list of voters is only purged once ever 10 years). It was found that some 60 of those names who had moved from Laconia were marked off on the Check Lists as having voted. (All the records of that election have since been discarded.)
More recently, this same person voted in the Primary Election for a third party candidate, but his vote was not recorded. So as directed he sent a letter to the Attorney General. Assistant Attorney Bud Fitch responded. It seems that his vote had been given to George W. Bush, along with another voter’s. It was asked that the machine votes be hand counted, but the request was refused, “because two votes would not have changed the election”..
At another point in time this individual asked the City Clerk Ann Kalongis (Dearborn) about the computer programs that ran the voting machines. Ann told him that she had no way in which to check those programs, and that the programs were written in Methuen, Massachusetts. (Ann retired a couple of years ago and they now have a new City Clerk).
These are but a few of the many examples of fraud and probable fraud that CNHT documents each year.

Wow, that's interesting.
Over 1/2 the comments posted on this thread advocate requiring people to pay to exercise their right to vote. What's next guys, paying for my right to free speech? You give the government an inch and they will take a mile.
