    Voter ID is now law in Wisconsin. State supreme court upheld law saying there was nothing unconstitutional about it. Finally! Just why were the Dems so bent on trying to stop this law from passing? Just what is it preventing them from now doing? Hmmmm? Oh, btw, the Dems should be happy because now even the poor and disenfranchised can get an ID...FOR FREE !! It also works for middle class, rich, blacks, whites and Latinos.

    Actually, to be legally precise, it was the US Supreme Ct. that, by refusing to review the decision of the 7th Circuit Ct. of Appeals, upheld the law, just as WI's Supreme Ct. did.

    Nice to see them both shooting down the Demos' latest barrage of unsupported legal cliches!

    I don't understand what all the fuss is about because when you go to the polls, you are required to show some form of valid, photo ID. No valid ID means no vote, it is that plain, pure, and simple. What the goddamned hell is the donkey dorks (democrats) problemicon_question.gif

    In a nutshell, they want to make it easier for illegal aliens, convicted felons, and the unregistered to vote. Everything else they say is just window dressing. Fortunately, SCOTUS is seeing right thru their dishonesty.

    Not in New Jersey. Trust me, I know because I work the polls. Also, if you aren't near a motor vehicle place, how are you supposed to get an ID?

    If everyone was REALLY cool about everyone getting an ID, they would make it easier to get one. Have more motor vehicle/state ID places in rural areas,cities, etc. Or for that matter, have students in high school get registered for an ID. Surprisingly, no one has made this type of offer. So, in my opinion, certain people [mainly republicans] don't want the poor, minorities, etc. to vote. icon_confused.gif

    There are some U.S. citizens who do not have a photo ID. The includes citizens whose ancestors were U.S. citizens going back more than two generations.

    The only photo ID that many people have is a driver's license, but not everyone drives and has a driver's license. Legal state ID's may be available, but many older people would have difficulty proving that they are citizens even though they are.

    The law requiring photo IDs to vote disproportionally affects older people and poor people.

    There are 71 motor vehicle locations and it costs $24. I'd say its pretty easy already.

    I would be interested to know what this does to the rate at which a polling place can process voters. This could create longer lines than already exist. Either way, is there criteria applied consistently throughout all precincts in regards to the number of polling stations and workers in each precinct. There have been reports from past elections where there might be fewer in some precincts, depending on whether the precinct has more registered Democratic or Republican voters.

    I would also be interested to know what one does at the polls when they are a registered voter but for any number of reasons is without ID. Is there a mechanism in place for this? Surely we don't tell them they cannot vote.

    Great.State ID's should be free for those under 21 and over 60.For the rest a nominal fee.How anyone can oppose showing an ID to vote is beyond me.But the many Americans support open borders too!I say.....this is good news!

    Why not under 18 since adulthood begins at 18.

    It can be difficult to get a picture ID.

    After living out of the U.S. for 10 years, I had trouble getting a New Mexico driver's license. I had to jump trough all sorts of hoops to get it. If I had been poor and living in a rural area, it would have been even more difficult.

    There is essentially ZERO voter fraud. This can all sound simple but the point is Republicans know that the poor are less likely to vote if you throw up obstacles so they are intentionally making it more difficult. They have ZERO interest in Americans having the right to vote. They just want power.
