What about religious exemptions? Some believe the photo takes away their soul. Of course that is ridiculous, unlike the idea of the trinity.

As the right says, it is worth the effort if in every law we pass we can keep at least one person from voting who might not vote for a republican.

This is a joke and will keep a lot of older people from voting. These idiots don't care....!!!!!

KnuckleBall - why would it keep the elderly from voting? I just don't understand why anyone (other than someone trying to manipulate the electoral system) would be opposed to checking ID.

Great law. For those who say it will keep ANYONE from voting, prove it! Usually the fallacious argument is regarding the poor. The ID card you get when getting food stamps has your photo on it. Did you know that? Try going to the Social Security office to ask about your account and not have a photo ID....go ahead I'll wait. Even pharmacies are asking for photo ID now. I've just listed 3 places the poor and the elderly often go that require photo ID. If it's required those places, what's the big deal about voting??? Could it be liberals want to keep the dead voting their way???? Ahh, but of course!

Yes, we can tell that there is widespread voter fraud, That has to be the Reasons Republicans have taken over the Legislature, and most of the offices across the Nation, Even the Presidency is held by a Republican who is claiming voter fraud and Wire tapping as we speak today.

Opponents counter there is little fraud of this kind, and the identification burden on voters would unduly restrict the right to vote......what the h_ll kind of burden are we talking about to get a photo ID ? and for how many people ?
