This is my first time posting here, so please forgive me if I do anything wrong.
While it may be easy to get a photo ID for a lot of people, it's not so easy for some of us. I live in Pennsylvania and I've voted in every
presidential election since 1968. Now all of a sudden, a photo ID is required. I am disabled; my driver's license is expired and it's not very
easy for me to get around. Going to the DMV is not an every day occurrence for me; it involves a lot.
In my opinion and in lot of other people's opinions too, this is a ploy by the Republicans to disenfranchise minority voters from going to the polls.
There is no reason whatsoever to have this law in Pennsylvania as we have never had any voter fraud here.
Despite all of the obstacles presented to me by this law, I will be voting in November. They can't take that away from me. It is my duty as an
American citizen to vote for the leader of our country. Thanks for listening.
I don't think your from PA to start off with, something about your reply seems like typical manufactured leftist garbage. It is easy to get an ID or
Licence in Pennsylvania. If you can't make it, arrange for a Veterans or Senior Citizen group to take you. And if the DMV's hours are not to your
liking(sometimes the registration/info desk is closed and the picture place is open) do like what I did, GO TO A NOTARY OFFICE!! Pay the extra bucks
to get them to file it with Harrisburg, and take the form they give you to the Photo center! If you can get off your arse and arrange to vote you can
get off your arse and get to the DMV!
Heck I wanna know how you get:
A) Check Cashed
B)Med's if any
C) Medical Appointments
Seriously, the only person who could be against this law, is someone with a vested interest in rigging elections.
Because this law is only targeting people who aren't legally eligible to vote. It isn't a poll tax, nor does it discriminate against anyone, as it
is unreasonable not to have a State ID in today's society. Because cases of people having genuine problems with getting a state ID are so far and few
in-between I would contact the State Attorney General's Office for help(if your being truthful), as I am sure they will know how to help you. Because
the point of the Voting ID Law isn't to harass eligible voters, but to keep people who aren't eligible from voting.
