The sides are polarized once again on the issue of voter fraud and the ##SNIPPED## believe that it doesn't exist.
They call racism and targeting minorities as a sign that the republicans are trying to stop democrats from voting. Hold on here for a moment. Don't most young people have IDs? And two if that. One to get into clubs illegally and drink and party with friends? Second why would minorities be targeted if they have to show an ID to vote? YOU NEED AN ID FOR EVERYTHING!!!!
I just cannot believe how many people can think that voter fraud does not exist...
Fraud? 1099 Felons won by 302 ballots
Cases of Voter Fraud "Virtually" Non-existent
Hannity Yells at Democrat for Calling Racist Card/Saying Voter Fraud Doesn't Exist

SOURCE: The Knoxville Journal, August 10, 1946; Page 1, 2. Arkansas GIs Threat New Riots Say Athens, Tenn., Outbreak May Be Mild In Comparison Little Rock, Ark., Aug. 9 (UP) — Determined veterans' opposition to entrenched local political machines flared heatedly in several Arkansas counties today, and one GI candidate said the Athens, Tenn., rioting would be "mild in comparison if there are any irregularities" at the polls. At Malvern, William Weaver, veteran and candidate for sheriff in Hot Springs County, charged his opponent, Ed Deere, was "custodian" of the ballot boxes and warned that "what will happen here" would eclipse the Tennessee GI political revolt. In Yell County, near the Oklahoma border, a crowd of 1500 veterans prepared for a mass meeting tonight to draft an independent ticket to oppose the machine slate of Chancellor John E. Chambers in general elections in the "free state of Yell." In Hot Spring County, Weaver and Coyle Collie, veteran of the Battle of the Bulge, are trying to overthrow the long-entrenched machine of Sheriff Jack Knight. GIs at Malvern planned a meeting tomorrow night. Weaver said "we just want to get a foot in the door of Knight's 'little Tammany' machine." Meanwhile, a five-man committee of veterans found an 87-vote discrepancy in votes cast for county treasurer, thus placing Norman Gray, veterans' candidate, in a runoff with incumbent Treasurer Ernest Stroud. The first official count declared Stroud the winner with a majority, but disgruntled GI forces appointed the committee last night to examine the ballots. In Ouachita a hot election loomed in which veterans are opposing veterans. Despite a no-political clause in its constitution, the Arkansas Department of Veterans of Foreign Wars entered the picture with a statement by State Commander Bob Ed. Loftin, who charged politicians were trying to "use" the VFW vote to influence undecided voters. In Hot Springs (Garland County), a final move to defeat the only successful GI candidate against Mayor Leo McLaughlin's potent local machine, failed today. Prosecuting Atty. Curtis Ridgeway, defeated by ex-Marine Col. Signey McMath, demanded a recount, but the new totals changed only two votes. McMath was the only veteran-supported candidate to win the recent primary.

In fact no you don't. It is very easy to assume that you need a photo ID for everything when in fact you don't. There is really only one thing you have to have a photo ID for, driving. Store policy is what decides whether or not you need one before they accept a check. It is against the credit card companies agreement with the merchants for them to ask you for an ID when you use a credit card. You do not need one to get benefits because there are a number of other documents that can be used to confirm your identity.

Originally posted by KeliOnyxDid it occur to you that someone else paid for her trip to DC?
Originally posted by KeliOnyxA great many people that do not need to drive and therefore have no need to acquire a photo ID.
Originally posted by KeliOnyxdid it every occur to you that maybe they are more concerned about things like staying warm and keeping a roof over their head that they don't have the time to deal with the bureaucracy involved in getting an ID
